Building synergies between modernized sweetpotato breeding and seed systems for improved varieties in East and Central Africa
- Impact Area
Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation
SweetGAINS (Genetic Advances and Innovative Seed Systems) is a program to accelerate and expand the development and dissemination of nutrient rich, climate-resilient sweetpotato varieties to benefit millions of African families. Over the next three years, SweetGAINS, funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, will employ cutting-edge science and methodologies through CIP’s regional breeding platforms in East and Central Africa to modernize national sweetpotato breeding programs on the continent. At the same time, CIP will catalyze the creation of seed systems that deliver quality sweetpotato planting material to resource-poor farmers in Africa.
