Establishing Community-Based Seed Systems: A Training Manual

This training manual is a compilation of knowledge, learning, and feedback from the series of Community-based Seed Systems’ (CBSS) training programs conducted in the Philippines. Digna Manzanilla, the Coordinator of the Consortium for Unfavorable Rice Environments (CURE) spearheaded the conceptualization, preparation, and packaging of this manual. Joel Janiya provided invaluable roles in coordinating and conducting the training programs; as well as, in editing and packaging the modules. Eleonor de Leon, Priscilla Grace Canas, and Christian Umali provided assistance in coordinating with the authors for copy editing, final arrangements, and presswork of this publication. Former CURE Coordinator, David Johnson and leader of the working group for upland rice systems, Casiana Vera Cruz provided technical guidance throughout the planning and implementation stages of the training and publication. With the able support of the International Rice Research Institute’s (IRRI) national program relations, headed by Julian Lapitan and staff, Manuel Alejar, links to Philippine’s national rice programs were made possible; thus, paving the way for the series of regional/national training of trainers on CBSS in the Philippines.
