This report presents the results of a Seed System Security Assessment (SSSA) in the districts of Farafangana and Vangaindrano (southeast Madagascar). This evaluation did not find an immediate seed security crisis that requires an emergency response or an immediate seed distribution. This SSSA did find chronic and acute stresses to the seed system. Report findings imply there are few or no acute seed shortages in the study area while poor seed quality, lack of new, adapted varieties, and limited availability of certified or quality declared seed at reasonable cost are chronic challenges in the seed system.
