ProGReSS’s outreach activity continued in September with a multidisciplinary meeting in Stellenbosch, South Africa, where policy makers, researchers, NGO and African farmer representatives jointly discussed how innovation in the food sector meets a pressing societal challenge: food security.
The minutes of the meeting can be downloaded here, together with the outputs of an interactive session where four working groups (the research community, civil society organisations, NGOs working directly with farmers, and Government agencies) answered the following questions:
1. List the three most important steps your sector can take or needs to take in order to support farmer-‐led seed systems.
2. Looking forward: what 3 activities will enable you to take the steps listed above?
