Integrated Seed Sector Development
seeks to improve the seed sector and ensure farmers’ access to quality seeds at an affordable price.
Working with Rural Farmers
The overall goal of ISSD, funded by the Dutch Embassy in Burundi from 2014 to 2018, is to promote rural economic development and improve food security through an integrated seed sector in Burundi.
Increasing Seed Prices
ISSD seeks to have 200 new seed enterprises that
are able to supply the market at the local and national levels
by 2018. The project will target an increase of 500 percent of
the volume of quality seeds produced and commercialized
in Burundi. It is projected to equip nearly 25 percent of
Burundian producers with access to quality seeds.
