    Strengthening linkages between small actors and buyers in the roots and tubers sector in Africa - Uganda 2019

    Irish potato is one of the most important crops in Uganda, which is the third largest producer of potatoes in East Africa after Rwanda and Kenya. Small scale farmers and food enterprises though strong contenders for regional and domestic market opportunities have difficulties entering the value chain. To unleash their potential, the Roots and Tubers project sought to: (i) increase and intensify sustainable market-led production and (ii) strengthen farmers’ cooperatives; (iii) improve access to climate change risk management tools and access to finance; and (iv) develop business models throughout the value chain in which farmers and enterprises play a key role.
