By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security and Enterprise (MAFSE) conducted a National Seed Policy consultation at Central Farm on Friday in collaboration with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).

The consultation, conducted by MAFSE consultant Ina Sanchez, is part of the work to draft a National Seed Policy that will complement the Belize National Agriculture and Food Policy 2024-2034, which was recently drafted with the guidance of FAO and MAFSE.

To ensure that the National Seed Policy is comprehensive and effective, the consultation comprised various stakeholders, including seed importers and distributors, the Belize Agricultural Health Authority, MAFSE technical staff, and Chief Agriculture Officer, Dr. Victoriano Pascual.

“The objective of the session was to present findings and gather feedback, emphasizing the importance of this information in shaping the final Policy document,” MAFSE said in a statement.

The National Seed Policy will support the five strategic policy pillars of the Belize National Agriculture and Food Policy 2024-2034 that aim to transform and improve the agricultural sector.

MAFSE said another consultation session will be held soon, targeting grain producers to incorporate their perspectives and needs into the policy development.

The National Seed Policy consultation initiative is part of the Technical Cooperation Program 3901 Belize Agriculture Sector Policy, which focuses on Seed, Back Yard Poultry, Marketing, and Indigenous Territories. This program is funded by FAO in partnership with the Government of Belize and aims to contribute to the development of national agriculture sector policies and an implementation plan.
