The broad aims of this phase of the project were to begin to create a significant developmental impact, firstly by obtaining official authorization to release the three ToLCVD-resistant tomato varieties and, subsequently, to promote and disseminate them alongside the alternative pest and disease management practices. These activities involved developing links with other stakeholders in the public and private sectors, as well as NGOs, who provided efficient uptake pathways.
