Improving dairy production through agroforestry and innovation

Innovation platforms in Uganda are empowering smallholders to adopt agroforestry to increase dairy production in both quantity and quality and improve livelihoods.

The greatest challenge faced by smallholders worldwide is having access to high-value markets and receiving profitable returns for their produce. The income from access to such markets has a substantial impact on the livelihoods and food security of smallholders’ communities.

To address this, and more, the Developing Value-Chain Innovation Platforms for Food Security project in Uganda and Zambia has created coalitions of smallholders, governments and the private sector in ‘innovation platforms’: sets of studies and trials of new practices, carried out by farmers, researchers and others working together.
