The right to food, and its non-variations, is a human right protecting the right for people to feed themselves in dignity, implying that sufficient food is available, that people have the means to access it, and that it adequately meets the individual’s dietary needs. We shall ensure that our programmes enhance synergies and share goals with both domestic and global efforts towards zero hunger by 2030. In order to advance the right to food in Uganda, we will promote sustainable farming and food systems as a center to our programmes in the life of our 5 Year Strategic Plan.
