Published by (name) / Mise en ligne par (Nom) : PAEPARD-CRFII UGANDA: African Indigenous Vegetable project
Description : Executive summary

 

This report contains findings from a baseline survey conducted in March 2015 to establish some of the impact monitoring indicators this project entitled “Enhancing nutrition security and incomes through adding value to indigenous vegetables in East and Central Uganda” seeks to deliver on. The indicators were captured by interviewing a total of 147 households drawn from the central and Eastern regions of the country where vegetable growing is quite prominent. The districts included Buikwe, Wakiso and Mpigi in the central region as well as Luuka, Jinja and Mbale in the Eastern region.

Among the key findings of this survey are the following:

§  The most common Solanaceae vegetables grown in the project are include Nakati (S. aethiopicum), Ntula (S. aethiopicum; Gilo group) Egg plant (S. melongena)

§  Nakati was found to be more prominent in the central region particularly in Buikwe and Wakiso whereas Ntula and Gobe (Vigna unguiculata) were more prominent in the Eastern region especially in Luuka and Jinja.

§  At present, households consuming of green leafy vegetables on a daily basis stand at 50%, 44% and 23% in Buikwe, Wakiso and Mpigi districts, respectively and at 50%, 63% and 58% in Luuka, Jinja and Mbale districts, respectively.

§  Approximately 61% of all the households interviewed obtained their green-leafy vegetables from own production while 5% purchased them.

§  In terms of vegetable sales in the central region, Nakati (Solanum aethiopicum) dominates among households followed by Bugga (Amaranthus blitum) then Ntula (Solanum aethiopicum; Gilo group) and then Doodo (Amaranthus sp).

§  Regarding vegetable sales in the Eastern region, Sukuma wiki (Brassica oleracea) dominates followed by Doodo (Amaranthus sp) then Ntula, egg plant and then the rest.

§  By district, Nakati and Nakati seed as well as Bugga are the most sold vegetables in Buikwe district with approximately 67%, 67% and 42% of households engaged in selling them, respectively.

§  In Wakiso district, Nakati dominates in sales (81% of households) followed by Bugga (67% of households) whereas in Mpigi district, Nakati dominates (32% of households) followed by Ntula (23% of households).

§  In Luuka district, Sukuma wiki is the most dominant vegetable sold by households (50% of households) followed by Doodo (36%) then Ntula (29%) whereas in Jinja district, Doodo is the most dominant vegetable sold by households (70% of households) followed by Sukuma wiki (50%) and Tindoli (50%).

§  In Mbale district, Sukuma wiki is the most dominant vegetable sold by households (79%) followed by Ntula (39%).

§  In general, Nakati contributes about 19% of the total revenue obtained from sale of vegetables.

§  In Wakiso district, the mean earnings from the sale of Nakati were established at about Ugx 1.5 million whereas in Buikwe district, the mean earnings were estimated at Ugx 180,000. In Mpigi district, the mean revenue from the sale of Nakati was established at Ugx 58,000.

§  Regarding access to information, majority of households in the study area were found to be accessing mostly information on crop and livestock husbandry as opposed to information on markets.

§  Households interviewed mostly access information through friends or relatives (39%) and then also through Radio (30%) and Extension agents / NGO workers (30%)

§  In regards to Radio listenership, CBS FM Radio Buganda is the most listened to radio station in central region followed by Radio Simba. In the Eastern region, NBS seems to dominate followed by Baba FM and Smart FM.

§  Concerning the preferred time to listen to radio, households in Buikwe preferred the evenings whereas residents of Wakiso and Mpigi districts preferred the evenings and mornings. In the Eastern region, households in Luuka and Mbale districts mostly preferred the evenings while households in Jinja preferred the afternoons and evenings.

FANRPAN Call for EOIs to Develop a Regional Policy Brief on Post Harvest Loss Management and Aflatoxin Issue

Published by (name) / Mise en ligne par (Nom) : Sharon Alfred
Description :

FANRPAN would like to engage a consultant to develop a regional policy brief and an opinion editorial (OPED) on post-harvest loss management and aflatoxin contamination in the groundnut value chain in the African region.  The purpose of the policy brief is to sensitize policy decision-makers and other actors on the rationale and urgency of critical regional agricultural and rural development issues. The policy brief and OPED should be clear on the aim and the problem being addressed (i.e., post-harvest loss management and aflatoxin contamination in the groundnut value chain). The documents should bring out a nuanced context, findings, conclusions and key policy recommendations.

FANRPAN CSA and PHLM Regional Policy Dialogue

Date of begining / Date de début : 26.08.2015
Date of end / Date de fin : 28.08.2015
Description :

Regional Climate Smart Agriculture Policy Dialogue

“Creating an Enabling Environment for Scaling up Climate Smart Agriculture: The Road to Paris”

26-28 August 2015



The Food, Agriculture and Natural Resources Policy Analysis Network (FANRPAN[1]) is a regional multi-stakeholder policy research and advocacy network. The network engages with targeted constituencies at local and national levels, through its current 17 member countries in Africa. In each member country, the FANRPAN network operates through an inter-sectoral platform called a “node” comprising a diverse group of organizations including research institutes, farmer groups, government, media, parliamentarians, private sector and other civil society organizations that have a stake in Food, Agriculture and Natural Resources (FANR) policies.


The content and discussions of the regional policy dialogue will draw on research from the following CSA focused FANRPAN projects:

Strengthening Policy Advocacy and Research Capacity for Enhanced Food Security in East and Southern Africa – Funded by the Africa Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF), the project seeks to strengthen the capacity of FANRPAN to support development of FANR policies in East and Southern Africa sub-region. One of the key objectives is to enhance the capacity of FANRPAN member countries to undertake advocacy on CSA policy formulation.

Programme on Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation in the COMESA-EAC-SADC regions – Funded by the Common Market for East and Southern Africa (COMESA),  the programme aims to support the inclusion of Africa’s unified position on climate change into the post-2012 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) global agreement.  

Supporting Smallholder Farmers in Southern Africa to Better Manage Climate-Related Risks to Crop Production and Post- Harvest Handling - Funded by the European Union and the United Nations Food, Agriculture Organisation (FAO), the project seeks to improve and sustain household and national food security in southern Africa through better management of climatic risks by smallholder farmers.

Stemming Aflatoxin pre- and post-harvest waste in the groundnut value chain (GnVC) in Malawi and Zambia to improve food and nutrition security in the smallholder farming families -  Funded by the Platform for African - European Partnership in Agriculture and Rural Development (PAEPARD) , the project seeks to reduce pre- and post-harvest losses by reducing Aflatoxin in the Groundnut Value Chain (GnVC) for improved food and nutrition security of smallholder farmers by addressing main constraining factors of technology dissemination and adoption, knowledge and information sharing, and policies.

The Regional CSA Policy Dialogue presents a unique opportunity for African climate smart agriculture stakeholders to concretize a unified African position on agriculture ahead of CoP 21. The event also seeks to come with strategies of scaling up CSA in Africa.

The objectives of this workshop are:

1.       To share the synthesis result of CSA policy scoping study results from 15 countries

2.       To share evidence, and dialogue on issues of domestic climate financing, and adaptation options like the Weather Based Index Insurance

3.       To solicit policy recommendations for advocating for CSA policies at  regional Level

4.       Identify opportunities for scaling up CSA at national level

5.       To chart a way forward on how best to develop synergies among different stakeholders and sectors, with the aim of scaling up and out CSA best practices and technologies under the NEPAD led Alliance for CSA in Africa

6.       Concretise a unified position on African Agriculture ahead of CoP 21

 

Expected Outcomes

Coming out of the Regional Policy Dialogue, it is expected that all FANR stakeholders attending the dialogue will recognize CSA as a ‘best potential way’ to steer agricultural research and development into a new era of global efforts to advance people’s food and nutrition security. Most importantly, FANRPAN hopes to:

 

·         Improve understanding of the potential of CSA in addressing the challenges of food security in the face of climate change

·         Identify policy options and innovative approaches for early action to accelerate deployment of promising CSA technologies and, practices with a particular emphasis on strengthening adaptation and application in Africa

·         Clear recommendations for Africa’s UNFCCC Negotiators on Africa’s position on agriculture and climate change  

Venue

The Regional Policy dialogue will take place in Lusaka, Zambia at the InterContinental hotel.

      Project Inception Workshop Report, November 2014

      Published by (name) / Mise en ligne par (Nom) : PAEPARD-CRFII UGANDA: African Indigenous Vegetable project
      Description :

      Enhancing nutrition security and incomes through adding value to indigenous vegetables in East and Central Uganda

       

      Genesis of the project

             Africa is home to hundreds of indigenous vegetables with high nutritive value, a potential that is hardly being used to contribute to the nutrition and food security of the region (http://www.nap.edu/catalog.php?record_id=11763)

             They are grown locally on a small scale, often resistant to diseases and tolerant to environmental stresses.

             The potential of indigenous vegetables emanates from their superior adaptation to local environmental conditions without too much investment is

             However, this potential is hardly exploited in the fight against malnutrition, hunger, and poverty.

             Approximately 50% of the population in Sub-Saharan Africa is affected by deficiency in vitamins and minerals (Tulchinsky and Varavikova, 2009)

             Average consumption of vegetables and fruits in E. Africa is approximated at 200g/person/day, which is far below the WHO recommended minimum intake of 490g/person/day (FAO, 2010).

             In Uganda, 21% of the population is classified as under nourished and 38% of children malnourished (FAO, 2011), mostly evident in the Northern and eastern parts of the country (www.fao.org/docrep/013/i1683e/i1683e.pdf)

             Indigenous vegetables contain vitamins and minerals which are essential in the absorption and metabolism of food ingested by the body (e.g. as β-carotene, vitamins C and E, folates, iron and calcium)

             Indigenous vegetables are also known to contain substantial amounts of antioxidants that scavenge for and bind to harmful radicals, which have been linked to ailments such as cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.

             Indigenous vegetables improve palatability and add variety to diets, especially for the poor http://www.ifpri.org/publication/east-african-agriculture-and-climate-change-0

       

      What is the problem?

      However, indigenous vegetables have not been mainstreamed in the staple diets of potential consumers because of  inconsistency in supply and poor quality of products due to

      a)      seasonality of supply,

      b)     long distances between production areas and potential consumption centres

      c)       poor post-harvest handling. 

      The project funding

      The Department of Agricultural Sciences, UCU has obtained support (Euro 250,000) from the EU for three years through an initiative of the Platform for African European Partnership on Agricultural Research for Development (PAEPARD) funded through Forum for Agricultural Research in Africa (FARA).  PAEPARD supports sustained partnership that mobilizes resources for priority projects that combine African and European institutional and financial resources for mutually advantageous projects.

      The project entitled ‘Enhancing nutrition security and incomes through adding value to indigenous vegetables in East and Central Uganda’ is led by:

       Uganda Christian University (UCU), Department of Agricultural Sciences and Entrepreneurship (Contact persons Dr Elizabeth Kizito and Dr Michael Masanza)

      in partnership with

      Farmgain Africa (www.farmgainafrica.org),  a private firm specializing in agricultural market analysis, value chain development, market information systems and market linkage. (Contact person. Dr John Jagwe)

      CHAIN Uganda (www.chainuganda.org),  a CBO which builds the capacity of small holder farmers through supporting formation and coordination of self help groups to effectively transition from subsistence levels to commercial farming for improved incomes and livelihoods. (contact person Dr Apolo Kasharu)

      Natural Resources Institute, University of Greenwich, UK. NRI is world renowned for its work in supporting food security, sustainable development, economic growth and poverty reduction. It has vast experience working with durable and perishable crops after harvest to reduce losses, enhance financial or nutritional crop-value, and assure food safety. (Contact person: Dr Deborah Rees)

       

      This project is about increasing consumption of indigenous vegetables which, despite being rich in certain essential vitamins and minerals, are not very much consumed hence leading to qualitative malnutrition mostly among children and women.  This project intends to improve post harvest handling of indigenous African vegetables in order to prolong their shelf life and hence increase their consumption in nutritionally vulnerable populations while increasing revenue of those engaged in their production.

      The objectives of the project:

      i.                     Better knowledge of indigenous vegetable varieties with prolonged shelflife.

      ii.                   Increased knowledge about technologies and processes for prolonging shelflife of indigenous vegetables

      iii.                 Better understanding of efficient delivery pathways for value added indigenous vegetables to end-markets.

       

      The results expected:

      R1.  Varieties of indigenous vegetables with longer shelflife and processing potential identified and profiled

      R2. Appropriate processing and handling mechanisms/technologies for indigenous vegetables adopted

      R3.  Appropriate delivery pathways of value-added indigenous vegetables established. Little work has been undertaken on understanding and managing the supply chains of indigenous vegetables. 

       R4.  Information sharing mechanisms on utilisation of indigenous vegetables established

       

      Crops in focus:

             African nightshades (Solanum villosum and Solanum scabrum),

             African eggplant (Solanum aethiopicum)

      Learning trip to Natural Resources Institute, Univerty of Greenwich, Medway, Chatham, UK

      Published by (name) / Mise en ligne par (Nom) : PAEPARD-CRFII UGANDA: African Indigenous Vegetable project
      Description :

      The project team members from Uganda travelled to the UK to benchmark project activities with the European partner; Natural Resources Institute, as well as explore and investigate technologies and methods used to prolong shelf life of vegetables (both berries and leafy ones). The trip took place on 17th to 21st March 2015.

       

      A number of organizations and research facilities of interest were visited and these included the following:

      •          A whole sale market for vegetables called the New Covent Garden market in Central London
      •           A Fresh produce Journal editor in Central London
      •          A vegetable Farm in Dover (Angflor)
      •          East Malling Research Centre     
      •         Natural Resources Institute

      During the visits, the team got exposed to the different technologies and methods used in handling of fresh produce in Europe. Technologies appropriate to tropical Africa were also discussed. The team also met food scientists at Eastern Malling who explained the different scientific research done at the centre (texture & colouration deterioration, fruit & vegetable ripening plus the causes as well as outlining the research history.

      Review of Draft GNVC Policy Brief

      bf_presentation_actuhand_sorting_poster_sample.2.jpg
      Description :

      Terms of Reference for Producing a Policy Brief and Opinion Editorial Article on

      Post-Harvest Loss Management and Aflatoxin Contamination in the Groundnut Value Chain

       

       

      Background

      The Food, Agriculture and Natural Resources Policy Analysis Network (FANRPAN) is a regional multi-stakeholder policy research and advocacy network. The network engages with targeted constituencies at local and national levels through its current 17 member countries[1] in Africa. In each member country, the FANRPAN network operates through an inter-sectoral platform called a “node” comprising a diverse group of organizations including research institutes, farmer groups, government, media, parliamentarians, private sector and other civil society organizations that have a stake in Food, Agriculture and Natural Resources (FANR) policies. 

       

      FANRPAN’s strategy is centred on three mutually supportive thrusts: Policy Research; Capacity Building; and Policy Advocacy. FANRPAN’s vision is a food secure Africa without poverty and hunger.  FANRPAN’s mission is to promote effective FANR policies by: (i) facilitating linkages and partnerships between government and civil society, (ii) building the capacity for policy analysis and policy dialogue in Africa, and (iii) supporting demand-driven policy research and analysis. FANRPAN works in partnership with other organisations to deliver its mission (www.fanrpan.org).

       

      One of the projects implemented by FANRPAN under the Food and Nutrition Systems thematic thrust is the Platform for African and European Partnerships in Agricultural Research for Development (PAEPARD[2]).  PAEPARD is an eight year project funded by the European Commission (80%) and partner own contributions (20%). The project is coordinated by FARA and aims at building joint African-European multi-stakeholder partnerships in agricultural research for development (ARD) contributing to achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

       

      The project is in its sixth year and is currently focusing on publication of research findings and advocacy materials.  In light of this, FANRPAN would like to engage a consultant to develop a policy brief and an opinion editorial (OPED) on post-harvest loss management and aflatoxin contamination in the groundnut value chain. This activity falls under the Work Package Partnerships user-led process, publications budget line item.
