An assessment of Uganda’s agricultural production, climate change, agricultural trade and food security
Increasing agricultural production is crucial to securing food and more foreign exchange through trade. Therefore, it is important to put in place policies and strategies that promote good agricultural practices such as use of improved technologies, soil and water conservation techniques among farmers to shield them against impacts of extreme events and climate change. The study aims at scoping the agricultural production, climate change, agricultural trade and food security status in Uganda. Specifically, the study seeks to: document the agricultural production and agricultural systems in Uganda; analyze policies governing agricultural production in Uganda; establish the existing linkage between food production and food security in Uganda; assess the relevance of trade policies to trade in agricultural produce; and assess climate change, its implications on agricultural food production and how it impacts trade and food security.
