Shinyekwa, R. (and others) Nabbumba, Manchester Univ. (United Kingdom). Inst. for Development Policy and Management and Bradford Univ. (United Kingdom). This paper 'Indicators of Success/Failure and Sustainability of Selected farming System in Uganda' is the sixth in the series of the project working papers.

It describes the research process and presents results from the first phase of this research-the stakeholders analysis. The stakeholders analysis is a practical application of the use. Development of composite indicators is considered an important approach for evaluating sustainable development.

For agriculture, different indicators have been developed such as Delphi, IDEA, MESMIS, MOTIFS, RISE, or SAFE. For its construction, usually bivariate and multivariate statistical techniques were employed.

These are pragmatic tools used to simplify the description of complex systems Author: Jaime Fabián Cruz, Yolanda Mena, Vicente Rodríguez-Estévez. Second, we selected the most relevant “thematic areas” for environmental sustainability in agriculture.

These areas are water, climate change, land conversion, soil health, and pollution. Third, we identified three generic stages of the “causal chain” of action that indicators.

proaches to making sustainable agriculture measurable by indicators and thus implementable on the individual farm. Criticism is due, however, when indicators should be regarded as a key indicator for assessing farming systems. The data base is sufficient at all scale levels. For an interpretation, however, information on the region-specific.

The need for sustainable agriculture in Uganda has been met with help from organizations such as the Uganda Sustainable Agriculture Support Organization (USASO) which helps train people in sustainable methods of farming. Ugandans are taught to. The type of farming practices employed within an agro-ecosystem have some effects on its health and sustainable agricultural production.

Thus, it is important and sustainability of selected farming systems in Uganda book encourage farmers to make use of ecosystem-friendly farming practices if agricultural production is to be sustainable and this requires the identification of the critical success factors.

This paper therefore examined the factors to. Figure. 1 Boundaries of sustainable farming system and structure of hierarchical framework of principles, criteria and indicators (Adapted from Muhittin, and Peeters A.

GULU, Novem - Agriculture can provide jobs to Uganda’s unemployed youth if well harnessed, according to the twelfth Uganda Economic Update published today by the World Bank. The report, “Developing Uganda’s Agri-Food System for Inclusive Economic Growth,” notes that the sector’s economic contribution extends well beyond the production sector into the wider food system.

Developing contract farming systems in Uganda. Introduction. Collective action remains the only effective means deployed by smallholder farmers in Uganda to have access to markets and reduce transaction costs.

These have varied from cooperative societies to various forms of farmer groups in an effort to have access to farm inputs, markets and. The World Economic Forum is an independent international organization committed to improving the state of the world by engaging business, political, academic and other leaders of society to shape global, regional and industry agendas.

The different indicator systems based on this concept can inspect and evaluate the sustainability of the agricultural system, and can improve the sustainable development of agriculture (QIU Hua-jiao et al., ).

Since then various term definitions have been offered; however, interpretations of the term. Enhancing food security -Food security and sustainable agriculture taking account of community-based and indigenous approaches to sustainable food production (Chapter II, 7 (a), (j) & (k).

Suppliers of farm inputs, Civil Society Organisations who work in the agricultural sector and researchers will also benefit from the successes of this project.

The project will mostly focus two sub-counties in five districts in Eastern Uganda, where land productivity is decreasing at a fast rate due to the high population and poor farming methods. related studies, this research uses data from the area with the highest business activity in Uganda which is a fair benchmark for other areas seeking economic growth.

Uganda actively pursued the sustainable development agenda since the early 90’s when it gained ascendancy. current and planned policy relevant to the agriculture sector is likely to facilitate future sustainable improvements in these livelihoods.

Research methods Three districts (Mbale, Kamuli and Mubende) were selected and three villages were chosen from each of the three districts. The research combined both secondary and primary information. Programme's Vulnerability Assessment and Mapping System (VAM) and its corresponding Risk Mapping Project (RMP), and the FAO-supported Global Information and Early Warning Systems on Food and Agriculture (GIEWS).

One of the key criteria for Early Warning indicators is sensitivity, i.e. that indicators reflect change in the situation promptly.

“Uganda’s agriculture sector may not be transformed overnight. But making the right adjustments now will be critical to realize the Vision ” With access to more finance, more efficient farming and climate-smart practices, the report says Uganda will be able to reach its potential in agricultural returns.

Opinion - Uganda has been named the most entrepreneurial country in the world by authoritative voices. Many businesses take off in any single year, but also many fail. Init was estimated. The purpose of this chapter is to identify the financial tools most likely to support sustainable agriculture practices in developing countries.

While there is more than one definition of sustainable agriculture, this report utilizes the OECD definition referenced above. Success/failure and sustainability indicators: In Uganda success/failure and sustainability indicators were developed for different farming systems using a sustainable rural livelihoods approach (see under “methods”).

The approach highlights the wide range and different types of indicators selected among and. The further thrust of IFS There is a need to create the database on farming system in relation to type of farming system, infrastructure, economics, sustainability, etc.

Local indicators for selected farming systems on success/failure and sustainability were identified in Uganda based on assets of importance to communities (natural, physical, financial, human, and social).

The use of this approach highlights the wide range and different types of indicators selected by different communities (see attachment). track the success of their programs, but also to communicate to the MOF, key political decision makers, and the public how resources are being used for the social good Within any health system, there can be many indicators of performance, from the facility level (hospitals, clinics, pharmacies), to the district or provincial level, all.

In light of the need for the sector also to contribute directly to the resolution of global social–ecological challenges, there have also been calls for nutrition-sensitive (Thompson and Amoroso, ), climate-smart (FAO, b) and low-carbon (Norse, ) agriculture.

Yet coffee yields are poor. To increase farmers’ production, a range of agronomic practices have been recommended by national and international agencies. Yet the adoption potential of recommendations differs between farm systems.

Using other types of resources in a sustainable manner is, of course, also crucial.
