This report, developed by GRAIN, unpacks and explores farmer-managed seed systems and their contribution to food and seed sovereignty, including the benefits they provide to farming communities as a part of their sociocultural, economic, spiritual and ecological livelihoods. The report highlights, exposes and explores how these systems work. It builds on reports of the seed systems of six African countries: Ethiopia, Mali, Senegal, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
