Using a peer-to-peer assessment method, senior researchers have engaged since 2016 in developing strategies for strengthening the institutionalization of the Early Generation Seed (EGS) Business in four partner public institutions. The business plans were started in 2016. But this study, and the development of strategies started in 2017. With CIP’s technical support, KEPHIS (Kenya), RAB (Rwanda), INERA (Burkina Faso) and DARS (Malawi) have developed strategies to address technical, administration and finance, social-cultural and policy bottlenecks. This will contribute to the sustainability of the EGS Business.
