D3. Women participation in CSPsWomen participation in commercial seed producer groups in Timor-Leste

Maria Fernandes, Buddhi Kunwar and Amaro Ximenes

Recognising the role of women in commercial seed production, their participation was examined in commercial seed producer groups established by Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries, Timor-Leste. From the assessment of 58 commercial seed producer groups, results revealed that women participation in membership was 36%, while in leadership positions such as Chief, Vice Chief, Secretary and Treasurer were 16%, 14%, 21% and 81%, respectively. Results suggest that although women participation in Treasurer position was highly satisfactory, more efforts are required in future from MAF extension workers to educate men to cooperate as well as encourage women to come forward to take more participation of women in membership as well as other key leadership positions – such as Chief, Vice Chief and Secretary – in the groups.

D4. Capacity assessment of CSPsCapacity Assessment of Commercial Seed Producers: A Pilot Study

Buddhi Kunwar, Antony de Jesus and Ilidio Medonsa

Sustainability of Commercial Seed Producer Group (CSPs) depends upon how far they have developed basic capacities to sustain their on-going activities. Recognising this issue, CSPs were assessed against five basic capacities identified through focused group discussions with CSP members and Municipal Community and Commercial Coordinator. These include: institutional; technical, management, financial and networking capacities. Two CSPs namely Ruxio and Esperensa Moris Diak from Aileu were taken for this pilot study in December 2015. This capacity assessment exercise clearly informs the MAF extension staff to identify areas of strength that need to be maintained and strengthened for the CSPs. It also indicates the key areas of shortcomings in the selected capacities. The capacity assessment tool found to be useful in rationalising efforts of MAF staff to improve CSPs performance in the future.

D5. Assessing the spread of maize groupsAssessing the spread of maize seed growers groups

Between 2011 and 2016, some 700 maize growing Community Seed Production Groups were formed in sucos all over Timor-Leste, and since 2013 close to a hundred of these groups have associated themselves into 35 Commercial Seed Producers, growing improved maize seed. Timor-Leste has 442 sucos, but the sucos are varied in many ways: 405 are rural sucos and 37 are urban sucos; some sucos are relatively easy to reach and have good infrastructure, other are poorer, more remote and lack amenities; some have more than a thousand maize growers, others less than ten. Given this wide diversity between sucos, how does the spread of the maize seed growers groups compare to the relative poverty of the sucos, and the number of maize growers in the sucos? Are there also enough maize seed groups in the poorer sucos, or in the sucos with many maize growers? To assess the spread of the maize seed growers groups, a combined suco poverty ranking / maize growers ranking is used.

Sean Penn purchased a pair of the black and white checkerboards at the Vans store in Santa Monica and liked them so much that he decided to keep them on when filming started. Unlike a lot of MFA, I do not like Ray Bans and it is not because they fall under the Luxottica umbrella, it is because the way they make their lenses is not up to the par which I feel my eyes deserve. Admittedly: I have weak eyes that do need protection. That being said, at least a few years ago, when I was being taught of lens construction, they said that they put "polarization film" between layers of lens so that it even, which is fine, but usually I find this sort of polarization method to be weaker than even other Luxottica brands, namely Oakley. I'll offer one more theory about MW and JOSB. Maybe there is a trend more toward casual wear and less toward suits at work. In my industry, all it takes is a bulge bracket bank to lay off 5,000 "suits" which seems to happen at least once a quarter and you see a lot less of them downtown. Finally I started saying to him, "Okay you wanna spit? You can spit all you want to in your room by yourself. We're not going to eat with you while you do that" He quickly stopped. I apply this to anything he likes. For Padawan learners, you can stop there, but real Jedi will also need a large, brown hooded robe with sleeves that fan out toward the wrist. If you have a sewing machine, you can make your own by cutting pieces of fabric for the body, the two sleeves and the hood, then sewing it all together. For an Endor look, you'll need to find camouflage or army green.
