The Uganda Local Network was established in 2018 and currently has nine members, led by Rikolto. The Local Network works closely with the government (through the Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Industry and Fisheries and Ministry of Trade, Industry and Cooperatives) as well as other strategic partners from the non-profit, private, and public sectors. Our vision is to cultivate a Local Network with active membership and strong internal and external linkages, that applies the AMEA Framework towards the goal of accelerating the development of professional farmer organizations in Uganda.
