REACH-Uganda aims to improve farmers’ market engagement, strengthen household resilience, and increase availability of agriculture support services for farmers and businesses in the rice and potato value chains.

The programme uses a systems approach, supporting investments with private sector actors in both the potato and rice value chains. Through private sector partners, these have targeted improving farmer access to productive assets, delivery of technical assistance by businesses and boosting farmer access to profitable markets.
