Securing Land and Seed Rights
Securing Land and Seed Rights to Realize the Right to Food In Uganda
This project under the Right to Food Program is implemented together with four partner organisations namely PELUM Uganda, ESSAF Uganda, Coalition of Pastoralist Civil Society Organisation (COPACSO), International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), Eastern and Southern Africa Small Scale Farmers' Forum (ESAFF), and Participatory Ecological Land Use Management (PELUM) with the aim of promoting seed and land rights as a corner stone for the realisation of a world free from hunger and malnutrition.
FRA believes that cultivation of food sustainably requires the two major pillars: land and seed. When these two are accessed by small-scale farmers, food security would be guaranteed and ultimately hunger reduced in prone areas of the country such as Karamoja and Teso sub region. This project targets two major outcomes namely: capacity building of CSOs to advocate and lobby for land and seed related policy change with a focus on guaranteeing the rights of small scale farmers and especially the rural women. In this project, FRA is leading on National level advocacy and policy influencing.
