Example text

In the 1960s and 1970s international support aimed to strengthen national seed production programs in developing countries (Cromwell and Wiggins 1993; Almekinders et al. 1994; Mywish et al. 1999; Lyon and Danquash 1998). Some of the programs are the FAO Seed Development and Improvement Program, which was supported in 60 countries during 1972–1984; the World Bank, which supported 13 national seed projects and 100 other seed-related projects during 1975–1985; and USAID, which provided long-term support to public bodies concerned with seed during 1958–1987 (FAO 1998).

1994). From the beginning of the 1990s, NGOs began to be involved in the seed supply system in Asian and African countries. These organizations have the advantage to supply seed in marginal areas because they have a committed staff and can easily win the trust of local farmers as they are engaged in socially valuable but nonprofitable tasks such as poverty alleviation, rural development, and livelihood improvement. In some cases, NGOs are directly involved in seed production, and in other cases they motivate farmers for community seed production through different approaches (David 2004; Witcombe et al.

In the third stage, NGO support is withdrawn, providing linkage with GOs and private agencies such as media and banks, among others (FAO 2010). The essence of this approach is to catalyze innovations in formal and informal systems and to enhance their impacts in the food security of people. Not much is clear about the development pathway for CSP beyond stage three, but it might develop new entrepreneurs in seed production and marketing as Morris et al. (1998) explained relative to the evolutionary pathway of maize seed.
