    An Expert Workshop on the Improvement of Seed Supply for Small-Scale Inland Aquaculture is planned to take from 27-28 March 2024 in Szarvas, Hungary. The Expert Workshop, co-organized by FAO and the Research Institute for Fisheries and Aquaculture (HAKI) of the Hungarian University of Agriculture and Life Sciences (MATE), aims to: 1) briefly review the progress of regional and national policies, seed supply systems and breeding programmes against the recommendations made in the previous workshop; 2) identify, and understand the critical bottlenecks in seed supply systems; 3) identify good seed quality and supply practices from various regions of the world and promote science-based solutions in developing regions to unlock the aquaculture’s potential, particularly in Asia, Africa, and Latin America and the Caribbean, for species key to small-scale aquaculture and food security.

    The document was prepared by FAO and the Secretariat of the Economic Cooperation Organisation (ECO) in the framework of the project GCP/INT/123/MUL: Seed Sector Development in Countries of the Economic Cooperation Organization (ECO) funded by the FAO-Turkey Partnership Programme. The document was prepared in order to facilitate regional trade and promote the development of the seed sector in member countries of the ECO region. It was prepared after extensive consultation among senior representatives of the member countries who freely contributed their experience and opinions in a series of national and regional meetings. Although this strategy was tailored to the needs of the ECO region, the same basic principles and objectives will apply to similar initiatives in other geographical areas. A few minor changes have been made in the text of this document to remove points that are specific to the region or are relevant only to members of ECO. Besides promoting the harmonization of seed regulations, this document also provides guidance on the topics that would be included in a national seed policy and the overall development of the seed sector in line with such a policy. With this in mind, FAO has decided to publish this strategy so that others can benefit from the work that was done for the ECO region, as summarized in the foreword. The key assumption of the strategy is that harmonizing seed regulations is a very desirable goal but progress is slow because of the need for each government to make changes to its own laws and policies. The priorities and procedures for doing those things will vary between individual countries. However, if there is broad agreement on the principles set out in this document, then countries can move in the same direction and gradually eliminate obstacles to the free movement of seeds and varieties across borders. The overall process should be one of convergence. The member countries of the Economic Cooperation Organisation are listed below: The Islamic Republic of Afghanistan The Republic of Azerbaijan The Islamic Republic of Iran The Republic of Kazakhstan The Kyrgyz Republic The Islamic Republic of Pakistan The Republic of Tajikistan The Republic of Turkmenistan The Republic of Turkey The Republic of Uzbekistan
