Nepal Seed and Fertilizer Project: annual report year II

The Feed the Future Nepal Seed and Fertilizer (NSAF) project was awarded to the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) by the United States Agency for International Development in Nepal (USAID Nepal). The project began on 1 April 2016 and will run for five years until 31 March 2021. It is designed to contribute to the goal of the US government’s Global Food Security Strategy (GFSS) of inclusive and sustainable economic growth to reduce extreme poverty and GFSS Nepal Country Plan objective 2 of inclusive and sustainable agriculture led economic growth. The project aims to strengthen the country’s seed and fertilizer systems by: enhancing the capacity and role of public, private and community sectors in the seed and fertilizer value chains through the provision of technical and business development services; improving private sector access to inbred lines and research knowledge from national and international research institutions; and enhancing public-private partnerships and coordination by establishing a tripartite research forum and a seed and fertilizer information system at the national level. The project is being implemented in collaboration with a number of public and private sector actors including the Nepal Agricultural Research Council (NARC), the Department of Agriculture (DoA), the International Fertilizer Development Center (IFDC), the Center for Environment and Agricultural Policy Research, Extension and Development (CEAPRED), Quantitative Engineering Design (QED), agro-input companies, and other in-country Feed the Future initiatives.
