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.

Strategic Partnerships and Social Movements

Food Rights Alliance has made significant achievements in advancing the right to food and its non-variations, as a human right protecting the right for people to feed themselves in dignity in Uganda. FRA works closely with other alliances and frequently represents CSOs on media engagements and government events. FRA has also organized actors in various platforms such as the NSA Working Group on Agriculture, The Natural Resource Rights Community of Excellence (CoE), in partnership with Government MDAs undertaken certain actions such as Joint Sector Reviews for Agriculture and Lands and also initiated collective actions with Universities.

We have committed staff and active members with adequate technical competences in various areas related to Food and Nutrition Security. FRA continues to strengthen the thematic groups and develop them into technical working groups. We explore opportunities of strategic partnership with Universities and Research Institutions to improve quality of research and analysis of data. We also seek opportunities to develop partnership with the private sector to improve service delivery to food producers and consumers, and endeavour to build a social movement in food and nutrition security by bringing on board a broad range of stakeholders and individuals.
