Uganda’s economy and population largely depend on natural resource-based sectors like agriculture, forestry and fisheries. Yet the changing climate continues to adversely affect these natural resource-based sectors, thereby intensifying poverty and vulnerability of many people in the country. With over 80 percent of the Ugandan population dependant on agriculture for livelihood, building sectoral resilience for adaptation to climate change is crucial for reducing rural poverty and sustaining agro-based livelihoods. In this regard, GoU with support from UNDP and COMESA is implementing a project to enhance resilience of agricultural landscapes and value chains through scaling up climate smart agriculture (CSA) practices as a climate change adaptation strategy in seven districts in eastern Uganda.
The project seeks to enhance resilience of agricultural landscapes through strengthening farmer organizations, gender inclusiveness and management of strategic agricultural value chains, and increased awareness and adoption of CSA practices in primary schools. The expected outcome of this project is adoption of CSA best practices that enhance climate resilient agriculture production and institutions for CSA and climate change adaptation, and increased investment by private sector actors, particularly the input and marketing dealers that will supply climate smart technology inputs and services. It is hoped that these will be achieved through (i) supporting adoption of CSA practices and technologies in farmer cooperatives and primary schools, and (ii)developing enterprise platforms to enhance productivity, value addition, marketing and integration of CSA principles.
