People who provide preparedness, emergency, recovery, and development assistance in areas where crop production contributes to livelihoods.
Policy makers and decision makers in donor and government agencies, whose funding and
implementation decisions affect crisis response.
To get started with SEADS, follow these three steps:
Read Chapters 1–3. These chapters explain critical concepts that underpin the SEADS minimum standards and an effective response.
Read the minimum standards chapters, starting at Chapter 4. The information and practical tools in Chapter 4 will direct you to technical response options (Chapters 5–7). Chapters 5–7 provide tools, such as decision trees, timing tables, and tables of advantages and disadvantages, to help you achieve the minimum standards.
Read Chapter 8 after you select technical response options. This chapter describes the minimum standards for impact-oriented monitoring and evaluation.
You can also use SEADS if you find yourself in the midst of a crop-related response and want to know how to strengthen it or how to ensure that your response has an impact on people’s livelihoods.
