Seed sector synthesis

Over the past months, the COVID-19 pandemic has spread across countries in sub-Saharan Africa and Asia. We are deeply concerned about the impact of the pandemic on people’s health and lives, and on the disruption of the economy and society, from household level to community, and up to national and global levels.

In this ‘Seed Alerts - Synthesis’ document, we focus on the way the crisis impacts the seed sector, and affects the operations and services of seed value chains of many important food and cash crops in low- and middleincome countries.
