With support from FANTA, the Uganda Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Industry and Fisheries developed these guidelines to strengthen the contribution of agriculture extension and community mobilization to improving household food and nutrition security. The guidelines aim to:
- Guide policymakers on the design of nutrition-sensitive policies, strategies, and guidelines
- Provide a framework for enhancing assimilation of nutrition actions in the selection of agriculture enterprises, as well as promote nutrition-sensitive programs within the sector
- Guide agriculture extension and community development workers and agents in selecting enterprise combinations that are both highly profitable and nutrition sensitive
Agriculture officers and their agents, community development workers, farmers, and technical officers in Uganda play a critical role in guiding the enterprise selection process and can benefit from using these guidelines.
