Promotion of Nutrition-Senstive Potato Value Chain East Africa-Uganda (PNSP) Annual Report 2019
This module focuses on achieving three key objectives in the potato value chain in Eastern Uganda. Objective 1 aims to enhance the productivity of 8,000 small-scale potato producers through training and adoption of Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs). Objective 2 seeks to strengthen coordination within the potato value chain, while Objective 3 aims to improve the dietary diversity of vulnerable groups in the region. The assessment reveals that Objective 1 has made progress with increased adoption of GAPs, although challenges persist in accessing quality seed. Objectives 2 and 3 are on track. Risks include declining soil fertility, disease pressure, and limited access to certified seed. The module aligns with national and European Union development strategies and collaborates with various donors and organizations in the agricultural sector. Proposed adjustments are discussed for continued improvement.
