The work of the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA) in Uganda is aligned with the Agriculture Sector Strategic Plan (ASSP) 2015-2020 in pursuing an inclusive agricultural transformation by striving to contribute to wealth creation and employment through the implementation of actions for value chain development.
AGRA’s strategy for Uganda leverages current private and public sector investments by prioritizing initiatives that complement the work of other actors to significantly increase smallholder farmers’ income, food security and nutrition by driving productivity. This is in addition to strengthening linkages between market and production systems and supporting the Government of Uganda in the delivery of an improved enabling environment.
In this decade, AGRA built an asset base in technologies, partnerships and models which can be scaled for a significant impact on the status of inclusive agriculture in Uganda. Our strategy and support in Uganda seeks to bring all of these elements together and contribute to the national strategy, improving the incomes and food security for at least 1.5 million smallholder households.
In this way, we will be contributing to the Government’s need for a strong agriculture sector that creates employment and improves food security by supporting effective coordination and implementation capabilities.
