Impact of quality seeds on SDG2
Agricultural inputs, including seeds and propagation materials, play an important role in the transition to sustainable food systems, and towards achieving the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations. Providing appropriate access to quality seeds for all farmers contributes to increased productivity and incomes. In addition, it contributes to improved access to sustainable, diverse and nutritious food patterns, and better chances for climate-smart agriculture.
Strengthening the seed sector
The Netherlands, as a world leader in seed and planting material development, can contribute to building an effective seed sector and brings together a unique network of Dutch Diamond actors from government, private sector, civil society organisations and research institutions.
