About the Project:
ACIAR project scientists in the Philippines have determined that the current organisation of the public and private sector nurseries is not providing farmers with seedlings of appropriate quality in an equitable manner. This project aims to improve the economic efficiency and policy environment of the Philippines Tree Nursery Sector, utilising a policy assessment model to identify appropriate intervention points for the nursery sector at both the local and national levels. Key outcomes will be the improvement of the quality of nurseries in both the private and public sectors and better integration between them, and better market structures that address issues of unmet demand for seedlings.
