Food security: Seed fairs in DRC

A case study about quality, quantity and variety of crop seeds for local farmers

2008 Available in English

As part of Tearfund’s commitment to beneficiary accountability, and in order to encourage growth in the local economy, Tearfund recently organised several seed fairs as a distribution initiative. Women, particularly those who were pregnant or breastfeeding, were given priority access to the fair.

This short case study summarises how the seed fairs worked and shares some of the positive impacts for the participants.
