Join policymakers, practitioners, industry leaders, and scholars to share and learn from experiences on what it means to put the ambition of seed sector transformation into practice. You will hear about two relevant experiences from Ethiopia and Nigeria to support stakeholders in becoming unified behind a shared strategy for transformation, whilst exploring the potential for companies to contribute and engage in public-private partnerships within the seed sector. There will also be a reflection on the value propositions offered from the Netherlands and how this can enhance the transformative potential of partnerships in Ethiopia, Nigeria and beyond. The seminar will conclude with a networking reception.

More information on this event, the programme and opportunities to participate will be shared in the coming weeks, please save the date in the meantime.
