Partnership for Agricultural Research, Education and Development

Building on WASP Momentum

Under the West Africa Seed Program (WASP) which was funded by USAID between 2011-2016, CORAF supported participating countries to adopt harmonized seed regulations in view of facilitating the access of quality seeds by farmers. Business models for agribusinesses are now available while actors in the private and public sector are now working together to ensure up-scaling of seed production and distribution needed for the transformation of agriculture in West Africa.


Many in the region and across the world view the implementation of WASP as a model.


Going forward, PAIRED shall leverage the momentum created by WASP to further achieve impact, not only in the availability of quality seeds but also in other agri-inputs and the upscaling of relevant technologies.
