The COVID-19 crisis is impacting the functioning of seed and other agricultural sectors in many different ways. Identifying and taking urgent action is essential to prevent increased risks to food security.
Rapid Assessments are conducted at the country level through survey and focus group discussions (FGDs). In its approach the Rapid Assessments
are inspired by the sector model developed by AidEnvironment, as adapted by the Wageningen Centre for Development Innovation (WCDI) to a variety of sectors including seed, horticulture, dairy and sesame.
As the Rapid Assessments continue, partners are encouraged to complete similar works. This methodology document informs on the steps taken to develop and distribute the Seed Alerts thus far.
