Bastiaan Huesken has extensive field experience and a strong track record in private sector development, with proven successes in seed sector development. He has led numerous projects that resulted in the sustainable delivery by the private sector of critical products and services, including agricultural inputs and agricultural advisory services, to previously unserviced demographics in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Burundi. Huesken is currently the Chief of Party of the Private Seed Sector Development project in Burundi, which aims to support the private sector in the development of sustainable sales and distribution models to ensure that Burundian farmer households enjoy continued access to high-quality certified seeds and agricultural advisory services. The project also facilitates dialogue between relevant private and public sector actors, including the national seed industry association and the Ministry of Agriculture, to review and qualify regulations with the aim to build an environment that enables the development of a dynamic and durable seed sector in Burundi.
