AGRA established a dedicated Policy and Advocacy Program in 2009 that advocated for seed policy and regulatory reforms that enable investment and growth of private sector seed businesses. These efforts were effective in informing and influencing policy through a “nudging process” that involved dialogue with the right people in the ministries of agriculture and national seed regulatory authorities. Grants were made that: enabled the organization of policy networks and dialogue forums; generated evidence for informing, influencing and improving the quality of government decision making; increased the demand for evidence by policy makers; and advocated for the implementation of better policies. The projects also institutionalized better systems for policy making, as well as monitoring and evaluation.
