    No results found.

    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.

    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).
