‘PARTNERS MEETING’ ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF A PLANT VARIETY PROTECTION (PVP) LAW IN NIGERIA, HELD AT NASC HEADQUARTERS, KM 29, ABUJA-LOKOJA EXPRESSWAY, SHEDA, FCT

Nigeria through the National Agricultural Seeds Council (NASC) is in the process of developing legislation for the protection of new plant variety. To this end, a draft law for Nigeria was received from the International Union for the Protection of new Plant Variety (UPOV) for domestication and adoption. The draft document has since undergone review and validation process and consequently approved and validated as a working document for the country by stakeholders.

In pursing this noble objective, NASC recognizes the role of stakeholders and collaborating agencies towards the realization of this goal and this has led to organizing a Partners’ meeting to review the progress so far; which was held on February 7th, 2019 at the NASC Headquarters, Sheda, FCT.
