The project will create 150 direct jobs and contribute to improved livelihoods of more than 10,000 farmers in remote rural areas.
Market Access and Technical Support
By providing market access and technical support, the project will help integrate farmers into export markets and reduce the current gap between world market prices and the prices Ugandan dairy farmers receive.
The project will also contribute to food security by increasing local consumption of milk and other dairy products, thus raising the nutritional intake of the local population.
Other Development Impacts
Trainings and other extension services will be provided to dairy farmers to improve productivity and milk quality. These services, along with the application of advanced technologies, will support the overall development of the dairy sector in Uganda.
Implementation of the project will include upgrades to environmental and social management, and the development of a comprehensive waste management plan, including pollution prevention, and infrastructure for waste treatment, storage, and disposal.
