Seed in fragile states: Cases highlight last mile seed innovations

Webinar moved to early 2022! Stay tuned for more details

In June, the USAID Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (BHA)-funded SCALE Award and ISSD Africa, through the Mercy Corps-led action learning activity Developing the Seed Sector in Fragile states, put out a Call for Case Studies: Models for Strengthening Last Mile Seed Production and Distribution in Fragile Contexts.

The Call received 21 applications from 20 different organizations working on seed-related activities throughout Africa. Thank you to everyone who took the time to share their work! 

SCALE and ISSD Africa have selected 5 cases that demonstrate innovative and impactful last mile seed activities and are now working with those implementers to develop full case studies. Stay tuned for the full writeups and registration information for the interactive webinar early in 2022 

Thanks again for the impressive responses! We look forward to sharing the cases with you soon.
