Where SBN is present

The country’s main sesame production areas are located in the semi-arid lowlands of northwest Ethiopia, in north Gondar and Agaw Awi of the Amhara and western and northwestern part of the Tigray regions. The SBN operates in twelve woredas of northwest Ethiopia, namely Humera, Tsegede, Wolkaiet, Tahtay Adiyabo, Asgede Tsimela and Tselemti woredas in Tigray and Metema, Quara, Tegede, Tach Armachiho, Mirab  Armachiho and Jawi woredas in Amhara region). These production zones account for more than 70% of the national production and are therefore the focal area of the SBN and its support programme- Benefit- SBN.
