    Nutrition country profile: The Republic of Uganda 2010 2010

    No results found.

    The Republic of Uganda is a landlocked country of East-central Africa endowed with large fresh-water resources and a high agricultural potential. The population, young and predominantly rural, is mostly engaged in subsistence rain-fed farming. A high population growth rate exerts pressure on the country’s resources. Although poverty is decreasing, it remains widespread, especially in the northern regions. Northern and north-eastern regions of Uganda have experienced severe civil insecurity which resulted in mass displacement of people to Internally Displaced Persons camps. Since 2006, the security situation in northern Uganda has progressively improved; but the situation remains tense in the north-east (Karamoja).

    Nutrition country profile: Republic of Malawi 2008 2008

    The Republic of Malawi is a landlocked country situated in South-eastern Africa. The country has very large fresh-water resources and a high agricultural potential. The population, very young and predominantly rural, is growing rapidly. The Malawian economy is largely based on agriculture. Most of the population is engaged in the agricultural sector, which accounts for more than one third of GDP. Smallholder rain-fed maize production is largely predominant and the livestock sub-sector remains un derdeveloped. Economic growth, highly dependent on the agricultural sector, is constrained by a high vulnerability to climatic shocks which affect the country frequently. Poverty is widespread in the rural population. Moreover, the incidence of poverty is not declining. Nevertheless, during the last two years the country has experienced bumper crops for maize due to favourable climatic conditions and an input subsidy scheme that has reached a very large number of small farmers.

    Nutrition country profile: Kingdom of Lesotho 2010 2010

    The Kingdom of Lesotho is a small, landlocked and mountainous country, entirely surrounded by the Republic of South Africa. The population is young and predominantly rural. Despite a low contribution to GDP, agriculture remains an important source of livelihood for a significant part of the population. The agricultural population is engaged in rain-fed subsistence farming, largely based on a single crop, maize. The agricultural sector suffers major constraints which have entailed a preoccupying decline in cereal production. Lesotho’s economy has registered mixed growth over the last decade but recent economic performance is promising. Although declining, the incidence of poverty is still very high.
