Hello from ECHO!
I have been contacted by a journalist based in Zimbabwe working on a story for Thomson Reuters Foundation on how smallholder farmers in Mozambique are reviving native seeds which they say are resistant to droughts.
He wants to do a story that will educate smallholder farmers in other countries in Africa on how to create seed banks and save native seeds for which are resistant to climate change-induced droughts. He would love your input.
If you are saving seeds in East Africa, could you let us know how farmers are responding to the initiative?
