Vacancy Coordinator SeedNL
SeedNL is looking for a coordinator to realize the ambitions of the partnership. The Netherlands Food Partnership (NFP) will host the secretariat of SeedNL.
SeedNL focuses on how the seed sector in developing countries can be strengthened, and where the sector can potentially expand to emerging economies, improving the productivity of farmers. The Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality and the Ministry for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation have launched this innovative public-private partnership with Plantum, the Dutch association for plant reproduction material, as a concrete implementation of their shared ambition to contribute to ending hunger in the world.
The SeedNL partnership was launched in October 2019 at the celebration of World Food Day and a collaboration agreement for four years was signed in February 2020. The focus of this joint effort to establish an “enabling environment” for the seed sector and climate-smart agriculture in developing countries will be on the most vulnerable regions: the Sahel, Horn of Africa and the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). This will be accompanied by activities in other countries where significant improvement of the food systems is possible, or a valuable contribution to end hunger (SDG2) can be delivered, amongst others by engaging the private sector.
