Project description / objective

FtF IAM seeks to increase incomes and improve the livelihoods of households through agricultural-led inclusive economic growth in the 38 FtF focus districts in Uganda.

Inclusivity refers to the active participation and engagement of all actors looking to participate in the market system, including the poor, women, youth, ethnic minorities or other marginalised groups who are often excluded – or even exploited – by traditional market systems.
