In Brief

This is the second in a two-part series about seed supply systems in Timor-Leste. Part 1 (Lopes 2018) dealt with the formal and informal systems, their strengths and weaknesses, and recommended that both could work together to guarantee sustainable seed supply. This In Brief discusses the National Seed Policy (NSP) and the National Seed Council (NSC), and then explores seed system development undertaken by both the Timor-Leste Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries (MAF) and the Seeds of Life program.
