The approach to scaling technologies based on national boundaries needs to be replaced by an approach that involves agro-ecological zones that spread across multiple countries. Policies and protocols for release and registration of crop varieties and animal breeds needs to be streamlined so that varieties/breeds released in one country can be utilized in other countries of the same region, same with seed system protocols that can replicated across countries within the same agro-ecological zone. TAAT, working with Sub-Regional Organizations (SROs) and CGIAR center responsible for policy work, IFPRI (and its key partners such as the Africa Technology Policy Studies ATPS Network), will review national and regional policies on variety release, registration, and the seed system with an aim of harmonizing them to fast track the release of technologies across similar agro-ecological zones. This will help open up the regional seed industry and markets and lead to faster uptake of technologies.
