Our vision is to have empowered self-reliant small scale farmers

Small-scale farmers’ proposals on the NDP III

Eastern and Southern Africa Small Scale Farmers’ Forum (ESAFF) Uganda and Oxfam undertook an assessment of two draft NDPIII programmes in chapter 5 and 9 which are; Agro-based industrialization and Water Resources, Climate Change, Environment and Natural Resource Management given their direct impact on small scale farmers. The Assessment sought to ascertain the extent to which the draft NDPIII responds to the needs of small scale farmers in the country who constitute the majority of participants in the agriculture sector. It is important to note that Uganda’s agriculture sector is highly vulnerable to climate change effects with dire effects on social inclusiveness, gender equality and quality of life. The development of this paper started in February 2020 with the consultation of small-scale farmers for major issues in their communities. The views in this document represent voices from over 48,210 small-scale farmers from 54 districts in Uganda. The paper mostly focuses on the proposed interventions in only two programmes of the NDP III. The proposals presented in this document are new interventions that small-scale farmers believe will transform the agriculture sector when included in the National Development Plan (NDP) III and implemented by the government.
