Implementing the ACIAR Trees for Food Security 2 Project: Our Observations, Experiences and Lessons from Uganda
Over 30 million people in Uganda depend on farming for a livelihood. However, there is a decline in farm productivity, over-exploitation of trees and deforestation. Accordingly, most farmers have become resource-poor, food-insecure and vulnerable to climate change.
The Trees for Food Security -2 (T4FS-2) project is implemented in the Eastern Highlands of Uganda to address soil and water conservation and food insecurity through promotion of locally adaptable agroforestry options supported by appropriate input systems.
