CALR Workshop Report
Regional Training Workshop on Policy Development and Harmonization
1 September 2012 - 2 September 2012


The Food Agriculture and Natural Resources Policy Analysis Network (FANARPAN) is implementing the Harmonized Seed Security Project (HaSSP). The project aims to, amongst other things, facilitate the harmonization of national seed laws on variety release, certification and quality assurance, and quarantine and phytosanitary measures; in 6 pilot countries in line with the SADC Harmonized Seed Regulatory System. The initial pilot countries are Malawi, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe, but the project is up scaling its activities to Tanzania and Mozambique. The overall objective of the project is to contribute to improved food security and poverty reduction through increased seed security and better disaster preparedness in the SADC region.

As part of its activities and to further understand the law reform processes in the pilot countries, FANRPAN commissioned a policy study in June 2012 (i.e. the HaSSP Policy Study) to examine the standard ‘domestication processes’ ordinarily followed in each country while assessing the challenges being faced by HaSSP project country Task Teams in legislative alignment. The research was intended to provide technical guidance on the way forward to enhance national policy alignment processes. The research was completed in August 2012, and it contains the alignment status in each pilot country, the challenges being faced and recommendations for enhancing alignment.
