Page 1: Climate Resilient Seed Systems in Africa Survey

As part of the GCRF-AFRICAP programme, we are conducting research on climate resilient 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.

More information on how the data from the survey will be stored and used, can be found here.


GCRF-AFRICAP is a new programme of work funded by the UK government, and being led by the University of Leeds and the Food, Agriculture and Natural Resources Policy Analysis Network (FANRPAN), in collaboration with the Met Office, University of Aberdeen and Chatham House. The programme aims to establish academic partnerships between UK and African research and policy institutions and develop capacity across these partnerships in the field of climate smart agriculture and food systems. It is driven by an aim to build capacity for, co-develop and demonstrate, nationally owned SDG-compliant agri-food development pathways that can be productive, sustainable and climate-smart.
