Word from the Chairperson

Dear friends, am privileged to serve as ACSA board Chair and I believe we have all  seen the active engagement of the board and members since my reinstatement as evident and documented in this report. ACSA is continuing to spearhead Agrarian policy and budget advocacy among her members at different levels following these thematic areas; Sustainable Agriculture, Agricultural market development and environment conservation, Research and documentation, Networks and Partnership Building. All the above interventions aim at increasing MOs and farmers` understanding  and participation  in  addressing  policy gaps and  issues affecting small holder farmers in Uganda

It is important to note that during this year our efforts have been directed to following up on the recommendations of the previous board and quite a lot has been achieved that include; Strategic planning, New project proposal development, Putting in placed operational policies and strengthening our engagements at different levels with particular emphasis on fast tracking the National organic Policy. These activities have been possible with the support from Misereor and USAID FTF EEA complimented by the line ministries (MAAIF, MWE), research Institutions and academia from Uganda and Germany plus other like-minded stakeholders. This has greatly increased our space in the policy and advocacy arena in Uganda. We shall continue to attract constructive membership as well as pursuing partnerships with likeminded CSOs, farmers, development partners and government for enhanced working relationship and constructive policy engagements in Uganda and beyond.

During the year 2018 more milestones have been reached at national level with the active participation of ACSA to have some relevant policies in place for example; National irrigation policy 2018, National Seed policy 2018, National fertilizer policy 2018 and that are pertinent for farmers and the agriculture sector in Uganda in general.

As ACSA growth in strength, we are particularly grateful to Misereor, USAID Feed the Future Enabling Environment, Caritas Kampala, ACSA board and membership whose financial and technical support is enabling this.
