Assisting Tanzania to harmonize its seed standards for improved trade in staples

Published on December 22, 2016


The Hub will hold a workshop on January 10 - 11, 2017 to support Tanzania in its efforts to streamline its seed sector by harmonizing its seed standards and regulations with regional and international standards. Seed standards and regulations impact who can produce, market, and distribute seeds as well as how seeds are imported and exported across Tanzania’s borders. The activity will also raise awareness among key stakeholders on how to effectively implement the new standards and increase seed and staple food trade in the region. 

Aligning Tanzania's seed policy with regional and international standards will allow Tanzanian producers to increase access to improved seeds and further integrate Tanzania’s seed and staple food trade with the EAC region.
