Overview

This project focuses on  tool development and capacity-building in Seed System Security Assessment (SSSA).  Such research skills are critical for designing  immediate response and longer-term programs which  support farmers during periods of  acute (disaster) and chronic stress. The SSSA is the first tool in the world to specifically distinguish between seed security issues and food security issues, and puts agricultural themes at the heart of disaster recovery.
