Open source seed systems for climate change adaptation in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania: highlighting the importance of policy support

In Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda, in particular, levels of undernourishment remain high, and climate change is likely to increase this further. Agricultural production rates are low and are estimated to drop on average by 22% by 2050, sending farmers who are already struggling to feed their families throughout the year deeper into poverty traps and malnutrition. Erratic rainfall and droughts are expected to become more frequent as a result of climate change affecting production.
