National Agriculture Extension Policy, October 2016


The Government of Uganda, through the Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Industry, and Fisheries, has formulated the National Agricultural Extension Strategy to guide, harmonize, and implement agricultural extension services to farmers, farmers’ groups, and other actors in agriculture value chains throughout the country. Under this policy, nutrition is included as a cross-cutting issue and is among the responsibilities of extension workers. Specifically, the policy states that including food and nutrition security issues into agricultural extension content ensures production and consumption of foods that contribute to a healthy population.
