This short film from the STEPS Centre brings together an engaging cast of characters including a farmer, a scientist, a regulator and a seed policy analyst.
Each has a different view about how best to secure seeds for farmers growing maize – Kenya’s key staple crop - in drought-prone regions of the country.
The film shows the importance of informal seed systems, as well as formal ones, for food security in these areas. It shows how policy changes underway could have serious impacts on farmers struggling for sustainability in a changing climate.
