Integrated Seed Sector Development in Africa

SeedselectorSmallholder farmers face challenges in getting reliable and timely access to good quality seeds at the right price.

This pilot project aims to support the development of a market-oriented, pluralistic, vibrant and dynamic seed sector in Africa. It addresses four themes:

  • Promoting entrepreneurship in the seed value chain
  • Access to varieties in the public domain
  • Matching global commitments with national realities
  • Supporting African Union programmes and seed sector development
