    In recent decades, many countries in sub-Saharan Africa have pursued national water permit systems, derived from the colonial era and reinforced by “global best practice.” These systems have proved logistically impossible to manage and have worsened inequality in water access. A new study conducted by the International Water Management Institute (IWMI) and Pegasys Institute, with support from the UK government, traces the origins of these systems, and describes their implementation and consequences for rural smallholders in five countries – Kenya, Malawi, South Africa, Uganda and Zimbabwe.

    This study explores consumer acceptance and valuation of a genetically modified (GM) staple food crop in a developing country prior to its commercialization. We focus on the hypothetical introduction of a disease-resistant GM banana variety in Uganda, where bananas are among the most important staple crops. A choice experiment is used to investigate consumer preferences for various banana attributes (bunch size, technology, producer benefit and price), and examine their opinions on GM foodstuff.

    The Legal Guide was created to share information on Tanzania’s system for regulating seeds and other inputs, including areas such as variety release and registration, seed certification, and trade, and to identify key decision points and challenges that could unlock further development in the seed sector and implementation of existing frameworks. The Legal Guide itself will be part of a larger process of consultation and discussion, with key decision points followed by recommendations and a roadmap for strengthening the regulatory system for seeds and other inputs.
