Following the European Development Days 2013 session on Small Farmers, Big Business, Brecht Lein and Thembi Maunze spoke to about a smallholder farmers project in Zimbabwe, which aimed to make seed available to smallholder famers and to improve food security in Zimbabwe.

In this video Ms Maunze, Senior Economic Development Advisor for the Netherlands Development Organisation, explains some of the lessons learned and key successes of this project. It assisted 2200 farmers across 5 districts, with the farmers were able to produce more than double the amount of seed expected.
