In Uganda, Helping Farmers Harvest Hope For The Future
Almost one third of the local farming production in sub-Saharan Africa is lost every year due to inadequate post-harvest management and household storage. In Uganda, WFP and its partners are combining their efforts to dramatically reduce these losses through a post-harvest loss reduction initiative.

Overview

Uganda has significantly reduced its levels of hunger and poverty over the last two decades. However, WFP's support remains important in addressing humanitarian challenges, mostly in the conflict-scarred, drought-affected northeast of Uganda and among refugees. Meanwhile, in the areas of the country that produce food surpluses, WFP is playing a key role in providing agriculture and market support for smallholder farmers.
