The Somaseed project (OSRO/SOM/516/EC) was funded by the European Union to improve the genetic quality of seeds in Somalia.The aim of the project was to ensure Somali communities could increase their food production in a sustainable manner, and are able to restore and maintain their productive capacity when faced with chronic pressure or shocks.
The project enhanced the availability and access for small-scale farmers to quality, local adapted maize, rice, cowpea and sorghum seeds.
The project was signed in December 2015. Implementation started in March 2016 and officially finished in November 2019.
