Provision of Adequate Tree Seed Portfolio in Ethiopia


Titre : Provision of Adequate Tree Seed Portfolio in Ethiopia

Pays : Ethiopie

Durée : 04/2017 - 12/2021

PATSPO will support the Government of Ethiopia in promoting and strengthening existing tree-seed organizations and support the establishment of additional private and government seed dealers. These organizations will receive up-to-date information related to all aspects of seed procurement for major tree seed producers/users. PATSPO will also establish a network to enhance collaboration amongst institutions engaged in research and development of tree-seed technology, tree improvement and conservation of genetic resources.

PATSPO is a multi-species programme designed to provide : * organizational establishment of the tree-seed sector, including stakeholder identification and roles and responsibilities, based on sector analysis ; * species-specific knowledge for priority tree species ; * a critical mass of tree genetic resources for the future, comprising exploration, mobilization, conservation, establishment, management and improvement ; and * capacity to monitor and deliver quality seeds and seedlings of the many species required for large-scale restoration.

The project will ensure that forest-restoration and tree-planting initiatives have access to high-quality seeds of the most important tree species. PATSPO is designed to support the national forest and landscape restoration programme, part of Ethiopia’s green growth strategy.

Mise en œuvre : World Agroforestry (ICRAF) is responsible for the implementation of the project, in coordination with the Environment, Forest and Climate Change Commission in Ethiopia, Ethiopian Environment and Forest Research Institute, and NICFI and RNE.

Partenaires : Ministry of Environment|Forest and Climate Change|Ethiopian Environment and Forest Research Institute

Financement : The Provision of Adequate Tree Seed Portfolio in Ethiopia (PATSPO) project is financed for four years by the Norwegian International Climate and Forest Initiative (NICFI) through the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Ethiopia (RNE)
Budget : USD $ 8,000,000
