This webinar announces the launch of the Seed Emergency Response Tool (SERT). The SERT is for policy makers, program managers, and field staff engaged in emergency and early recovery agricultural responses. It helps those new to this area of work, as well as those with experience, to make informed, quality decisions about the choice of a seed security intervention and how best to implement it.
Effective seed security responses require strategic thinking and deliberate design actions. Clear goals must be set; choices among equally good interventions need to be mapped out; and the selection of appropriate responses must be geared to equitably meet the varied needs of men and women farmers. The SERT provides guidance on how best to tackle these tasks.
The SERT also synthesizes the growing body of good or better practices linked to seed security response. It is framed by a set of 10 core principles and accompanied by field-tested tools: decision trees for choosing a suitable intervention; checklists for evaluating responses; and reference materials for those seeking more technical detail.
Come learn more about the tool and its contents on June 8th! Full speaker list forthcoming.
