Abstract
The Annual Report for the Resilient Efficient Agribusiness Chains in Uganda (REACH-Uganda) project covers the nine months from April to December 2017. The report highlights significant progress achieved during this period, including scoping and screening micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) and project partners and direct engagement and training of over 18,000 farmers. The report also focuses on the successful launch of public-private partnership (PPP) infrastructure activities in 19 districts and the vibrant potato value chain by introducing new potato varieties and technology. Challenges faced during the reporting period are acknowledged, particularly in the rice sector, due to uncertainty over the impact of the suspension of the Common External Tariff (CET) on rice.
