Breaking Down Barriers to Agribusiness in Uganda.

Feed the Future Uganda Enabling Environment for Agriculture Activity

Project Dates: April 2013 - April 2018
In Uganda, where half of all exports are agricultural, crop yields are low, but the public and private sectors are collaborating to improve agricultural production and make it easier for farmers to do business.

Given Uganda’s favorable weather conditions and wealth of arable land, Uganda’s agriculture sector has enormous potential, but its crop yields remain low. To harness the country’s agricultural potential, the Feed the Future Uganda Enabling Environment for Agriculture Activity is identifying and addressing constraints on agricultural development. By working with public and private actors to create a policy and regulatory framework that advances agribusiness, the activity is improving agricultural production and trade for farmers.

Project Goals


  • Remove policy and regulatory barriers to agricultural production, processing, marketing, and trade
  • Train the Ugandan government to better support agricultural development
  • Enable the agricultural sector to adapt to the effects of climate change
  • Incorporate perspectives from the government, private sector, and civil society into the reform process
