Pig Value Chain Project

Pig Value Chain Project, November - December 2020

Working our sister NGO, AgriTechTalk Africa, on an ILRI project, we developed training resources to develop the value chain for small-scale Ugandan pig farmers. These materials were rolled out to agricultural officers during training delivered by AgriTechTalk Africa in the Masaka and Mukono districts of Uganda. The materials provide simple systems and tools that could be used to calculate the gross margin of the farmer's pig enterprise, enabling better understanding of profitability, and so improved decision making.

Drought and Flood Mitigation Service

DFMS (UK Space Agency via the International Partnership Programme) - March 2017 - present

The Drought and Flood Mitigation Service (DFMS) aimed to develop improved climate, hydrological and Earth Observation forecasts and information for Uganda. In association with our sister NGO AgriTechTalk Africa, our combined involvement included the regular collection and analysis of crop yield and livestock body condition data across the Karamoja sub-region, using AAI's PET methodology. Although primarily collected for project monitoring, the assessments enabled AAI to produce regular reports on crop yield and livestock condition, circulated to Uganda Ministry officers for planning and information purposes. 

Field data were collected by the AgriTechTalk Africa field team, based in Karamoja, Uganda.
