The Area-Based Agricultural Modernisation Programme (AAMP) in Uganda follow-on to the erstwhile Southwest Region Agricultural Rehabilitation Project which was co-financed by IFAD and the World Bank. The operation is considered as part of the strategy for implementing GOU's Plan for Modernisation of Agriculture (PMA). As a strategy for agricultural modernisation, the implementation of AAMP will lead to an increased agricultural productivity, production and income in ten districts of South West Uganda, through: (i) use of improved technologies, including irrigation; (ii) access to credit and other farm inputs; and (iii) improvement of rural infrastructures, particularly feeder roads. Through support for the rehabilitation of feeder roads, in addition to improving access to market and reducing transportation costs of farm inputs and outputs, the programme will open up other income-generating opportunities for rural communities, particularly for women engaged in craft works, and better access to health and educational facilities. The total programme cost is estimated at UA 22.47 million. It will be implemented over six years.
The overall sector goal of the proposed programme is to contribute to poverty reduction among rural households in the programme area. The specific objective of the programme is to increase programme area households’ income.
The programme will directly benefit over 300,000 households or about 1.5 million rural persons, some of which are headed by women who in most cases provide much of the labour.
