About AFRICAP

GCRF-AFRICAP

GCRF-AFRICAP is a major programme to make agriculture and food production in Sub-Saharan Africa more productive, sustainable and resilient to climate change.

Working with local organisations and governments in Malawi, South Africa, Tanzania and Zambia, we are creating an evidence base to underpin new country-specific policies in agriculture and food production.

NEW: GCRF-AFRICAP Seed Systems Survey

Through the GCRF-AFRICAP programme , FANRPAN and the University of Leeds are conducting research into climate smart seed systems. As part of the research, we are seeking responses to this short survey from those involved in seed system activity (e.g. gene/seed banks, crop breeders, regulators, seed companies, agrodealers, extension officers, farmers) across Africa.

We are particularly interested in the priorities and activities that direct seed systems in Africa, and evaluating the importance of and responses to climate variability and change within these systems. The survey takes 5-10 minutes to complete. Your answers will be anonymous, although if you would be willing to be contacted for follow up information or would like to receive updates on the research, there will be a space to provide your contact details.
