This guide brings together and structures diverse methods and tools for implementing a seed sector assessment (SSA) and designing a national seed road map (NSRM). A seed sector assessment (SSA) provides the answer to the primary seed sector performance question: Where are we now? A national seed road map (NSRM) addresses two additional questions: Where do we want to go, and how will we get there?

The guide gives guidance to policy makers considering commissioning an NSRM and practitioners conducting the assessment and designing of an NSRM. It presents guiding concepts and presents tools in two categories: assessment tools, and design tools. Users can select tools for a light-touch assessment of the seed system of a particular crop or crop group, or a comprehensive set of tools for conducting an interdisciplinary research project covering the entire seed sector with all its crops and seed systems, or anything in between.
