We shall be having community radio discussions with the farmers and food vendors in different parts of Buikwe district on the impact of Covid 19 pandemic on food and nutrition security including discussing remedial suggestions for action. Please save the following dates to get involved.
Due to national lockdown as a measure of avoiding the wide spread of Covid 19, smallholder farmers have been highly affected. Transporting food products to the markets has become a big challenge and also consumers mostly from the urban areas are finding it hard to access farmers due to the limited direct contacts. This has posed a big question on how both farmers and consumers can widely be linked to avoid the amount of food that it is currently rotting on farms as well as reducing the increasing cases of hunger in the urban areas. Slow Food Uganda with support from the partners including Hivos East Africa under the SD4All programme and AgroEcology Fund has come out to organize a one day farmers’ market in Ngogwe on 7th August 2020. Farmers will be able to sell their produce directly to consumers and also have one on one discussions with consumers. This one day market will be vital in promoting the small scale farmers and as well improve access to nutritious diverse food products during this period of Covid 19. The market will strictly follow the guidelines of the government on the prevention of Covid 19 pandemic. ... See MoreSee Less
