Policy Briefs: Seeds, Agro-dealers and Political Economy

Six new Policy Briefs shed light on the political economy of seeds in Kenya, Malawi, Ghana, Ethiopia and Zimbabwe. They arise from the work of the Science, Technology and Innovation theme of the Future Agricultures Consortium.

These Policy Briefs also link to an IDS Bulletin on the politics of seed in Africa’s Green Revolution.
