Key words: governance; access to seeds; seed regulations

Seed sector development has been on the agenda of Heads of State and Government since 2005.

Recognition of the importance of access to quality seed in enhancing agricultural production and productivity ought to be accompanied by development, efficient and effective implementation of national seed laws and seed regulations or decrees. It is my belief that this report will help to advance the understanding of the seed sector and biotechnology, increase Africa’s ability to consolidate the gains made in the last decade and address the challenges faced in order to realize Malabo Commitment III on ending hunger and malnutrition.
