Seed and Knowledge Initiative (SKI)

01.08.2013 - 28.02.2019

The project contributes to strengthening and consolidating local knowledge and practices on seeds for better resilience. In parallel, research is conducted on community seed systems and the interface between the formal and informal seed sectors. This will inform advocacy strategies and influence the policy-making and scientific narrative for improved seed and food security in the SADC region (Zimbabwe, Zambia, Swaziland, Mozambique, South Africa).


Advocating for Agro-Biodiversity

01.07.2013 - 31.08.2016

This project supports small-scale farmer and farmer support organizations in the region in their efforts to foster democratic debate over legal frameworks having an impact on food security, and more specifically: agro-biodiversity , farmers’ rights to use, save and exchange seeds, and the diverse forms of knowledge farmers develop and maintain. This project also helps farmers in defining the role they want to see State institutions play in protecting all of the above.


Regional Vulnerability Assessment and Analysis (RVAA)

01.06.2013 - 31.03.2017

The project supports Southern African Development Community (SADC) and its member states in establishing and updating systems for vulnerability assessments and analysis (VAA) providing reliable information on food security situation and related conditions to determine appropriate short-term interventions and long-term policy and projects planning. The project will establish VAA systems in countries without such analyses, update existing systems to integrate climate change with food security and develop capacities for VAA.


Strengthening Monitoring, Evaluation and Reporting Systems for OVC&Y Programming in SADC

01.04.2013 - 31.03.2019

The project strengthens the Monitoring and Evaluation system for Orphaned and Vulnerable Children and Youth (OVC&Y) among Member States of the Southern African Development Community (SADC). The project includes the training of key personnel, the inclusion of standardised OVC&Y indicators into already existing national data collection and reporting systems. Through such a system, Member States will be able to make sound evidence based decisions on issues that are relevant for OVC&Y, in particular on HIV and AIDS programming.
 


Effective Grain Storage for Better Livelihoods of African Farmers

01.04.2012 - 31.03.2016

Post harvest losses are being recognised by all major stakeholders such as Southern African Development Community (SADC), the African Development Bank and FAO as a major problem. Postharvest losses have repercussions on hunger, poverty alleviation, income generation and economic growth. On the other hand besides quantitative losses, qualitative losses imply that the full nutritional value is not delivered. This is particularly important for HIV/AIDS affected population. SDC has a vast experience with metal silo technology in POSTCOSECHA programme in South America and can contribute in the region to the policy dialogue and share experiences with SADC, African Development Bank and FAO including SDC national offices in Zimbabwe and Tanzania.
