Uganda: Community Agricultural Infrastructure Improvement Programme
12 September 2012
African Development Bank: The Community Agricultural Infrastructure Improvement Programme – Project I (CAIIP-1) resulted from a comprehensive review of Uganda’s agricultural sector, which was carried out in 2005 by the Ugandan government in collaboration with the African Development Bank (AfDB). The review, which was undertaken under the auspices of Uganda's Plan for Modernization of Agriculture, identified a number of investment gaps especially with regard to infrastructure - for access to markets, and for agro-processing, environmental and natural resource management. The project aims to contribute to poverty reduction and economic growth in Uganda through improved commercialization of agriculture. More specifically, the project aims to increase farmers’ access to markets, and attract competitive prices and increased incomes through improvements in rural infrastructures and their management by well-mobilised communities.
