The project aims to provide farmers in Uganda with a means to adapt to climate change and build resilience that enables them to maximize production, thereby improving food and income security.
The project is focusing on establishing sustainable delivery mechanisms of Solar Powered Irrigation Systems (SPIS) for farmers in Uganda. The activities under the project revolve predominantly around strengthening private sector approaches, through capacity building of farmers, SPIS technology providers, financial institutions (FIs), and providers of agro-inputs across the agricultural ecosystem (input, processes, and outputs).
The project is further working to advance the business models previously developed with interested FIs to reach financial close for investments. The project intends to achieve its objectives through the following outcomes.
To improve resilience of small holder farmers to the impacts of climate change through the adoption and capacity building on climate smart agricultural practices including but not limited to solar powered irrigation.
Outcome 1: Strengthen private sector supply chains for SPIS and market access for farmers.
Outcome 2: Strengthen national capacity to promote, design, finance and implement SPIS in Uganda.
Outcome 3: Mobilize USD 10m of finance for SPIS technology and Climate Smart Agriculture solutions.
- Framework for SPIS quality among private technology providers promoted
