Strengthening Seed and Output Markets
Under the mandate of Swiss Development Bill, SDC Cooperation Office Southern Africa has developed a Regional Food security strategic framework with Implementation at Local Level as focus. The overall result of this project is to improve the food security of approximately 40'000 people in the three countries, in Zimbabwe, Lesotho and Swaziland and to make them less dependant from humanitarian assistance. This objective will be achieved by improving local production of high quality of seeds and accompanying training measures through the agriculture extension officers in the region. This will be done as complementary measure of the existing humanitarian assistance project provided by SDC in Zimbabwe and by WFP in Swaziland and Lesotho.
