This first progress report for the five-year Sida programme provides a comprehensive review of programme activities, progress towards outcomes, risks encountered and lessons learned in the first 18 months – from 1 October 2013 to 31 March 2015. It also discusses adjustments required to Year 2 implementation as a result of these findings. SeedsGROW – thanks to the invaluable support of its partners Sida, International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs (through its MFS funding programme) and the Dutch National Postcode Lottery (NPL) – is tackling the issues of unequal and unsustainable global seeds and food systems. It will also demonstrate how to make changes, and identify how effective methods can be replicated and sustained. Oxfam and its partners are proud of the programme’s considerable achievements over its first year, which include: developing and testing baseline and farmer field school tools with smallholder farmers
