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.

Reduced Hunger and Malnutrition

Aiming to promote sustainable farming systems, FRA places her focus on three areas: 1) Building Community Resilience and adaptation to economic, political, environmental and social disasters; 2) Promoting best practices and alternatives for food producers and consumers including policy and regulatory frameworks. 3) Promoting community based natural resource management. In terms of our approach we seek to engage more with community structures and build stronger ties with local authorities, formal and informal justice mechanisms and work in partnerships where there is a strong added value.

Under this strategic objective, FRA envisions a sustained downward trend in hunger and malnutrition in targeted areas as a result of improved access to sufficient food; Increased agricultural production and productivity; and Improved access to productive resources (Land, water, seed and farming techniques) by the vulnerable in communities
