Review of seeds and seedlings systems in Rwanda: Rubavu and Nyabihu districts uri icon

abstract

  • Key informants' survey on seeds and seedlings systems in were conducted in Rwanda to i) map out the tree seed and seedling supply system in order to establish the role of the government and NGOs in the systems, ii) assess the quality of the germplasm as mapped out in the seed sourcing, collection/ procurement and distribution and ultimately seedling production; and iii) identify the organizations and individuals dealing with tree seeds and seedlings, their roles, supply channels, the support given to tree seed dealers and nursery operators available, challenges encountered in the system and opportunities that exist. The findings were expected to give early indications of research and development interventions geared towards overcoming bottlenecks in the systems especially on networking, information sharing and system sustainability.
