Video: How Better Seeds Make Timor-Leste Climate Resilient

For places such as Timor-Leste, a small South-East Asian country that is prone to weather extremes, climate change could deliver a serious blow.

Drought and post-harvest losses from problems such as poor storage already worsen poverty and malnutrition in a country where 40 per cent of under-fives have stunted growth.

The project Seeds of Life is designed to improve food security in Timor-Leste by helping farmers produce and distribute improved seed varieties, which they use themselves but also sell for profit, driving the local supply chain.
