With so many people isolated at home due to the Covid 19 outbreak, it was an opportunity for Mr. Mugalu Dauda to concentrate on his backyard garden and mobilization of the nearby households on the importance of having vegetable gardens at homes for improved nutrition.

Timeline PhotosLimited government support, unfavorable policies, and lack of research on the benefits of agroecological solutions to face the current food system are some of the challenges centered on agroecology that we need to address to pave the path toward food sovereignty in the communities amid the growing crises.

These issues are amplified by the lack of consumer knowledge on the value of supporting ecological food systems, the increasing threat of climate change, and the current agribusiness model that mostly looks at industrial agriculture and exploitative production systems as the easiest ways to make profits from food and agriculture.

Slow Food Uganda, in collaboration with Slow Food International, is working to increase the ability of local communities to produce good, clean, and fair food by implementing initiatives funded by the Agroecology Fund under the Building Local Economies in East Africa Through Agroecology project.
