Enhancing agribusiness economic opportunities of rural women and girls

This project aims to improve the technical capacity and economic status of women and youth involved in agribusiness. It combines research and training approaches to generate new evidence and explore the potential and challenges of the agribusiness sector to generate productive employment and empower women.

Using data from Uganda, it will examine the determinants of agribusiness growth and recommend practical policy relevant results and directions on how to support and scale-up agribusiness development. The project will also highlight the profile of youth and women engaged in agribusiness, and build their capacity through village skills development and apprenticeship training programs. The Centre for Basic Research will lead the project and will work in partnership with the KiBO Foundation and Awoja Riverside Farm.
