The objective of the Seed Unit of ICARDA is to strengthen national seed systems in Central and West Asia and North Africa (WANA) and build sustainable seed supply systems. The Unit has received financial support from the Government of the Netherlands and the Government of Germany. These generous financial contributions provided an extra opportunity for key activities in the field of human resource development and the economics of seed production. As the Unit has not published an annual report since 1997, this five-year report reviews the activities, which have been carried out in the period 1997-2001. This report discusses work carried out by the Unit in nine sections: WANA Regional Seed Network (Section 2), Economics of Seed Production (Section 3), Seed Security (Section 4), Research (Section 5), Human Resources Development for the Seed Sector (Section 6), Seed Production and Distribution (Section 7), and International Activities (Section 8). Section 9 summarizes the Status of Cooperation with Regional Programs and Countries, and Section 10 and 11 present the Seed Unit Staff, External Consultants, and a list of Publications.
