Feed the Future Uganda Commodity Production and Marketing Activity
The majority of Ugandans rely on farming for their incomes, but the country’s agriculture sector, dominated by smallholder farmers, has historically had low economic support and output. The purpose of the Feed the Future Uganda Commodity Production and Marketing Activity was to reduce poverty and promote the long-term prosperity of rural Ugandan families by increasing the quality and quantity of farmers’ crops in the maize, bean, and coffee value chains. The activity worked with exporters and other buyers to extend genuine agricultural inputs and productivity-enhancing services down the value chain. By building trust between value chain actors, the activity promoted an inclusive market system in Uganda.
