Project General Description

The proposed Community Agricultural Infrastructure Improvement Programme Project 2 (CAIIP-II) will cover 15 districts in Northern and Eastern Uganda in 65 sub-counties. In addition, it will also cover another 26 districts in CAIIP-I areas in 32 subcounties. CAIIP-2 is among the many initiatives that are geared towards enhancing development in the North with particular focus on restoring the agricultural potential and food security of the region which has been affected by armed conflict for the past 20 years. The project will also complement other Government programmes, especially the National Agricultural Advisory Services (NAADS) in increasing production. Its implementation is articulated around three components with the following outputs: (i) Rural Infrastructure Improvement (ii) Community Mobilization and (iii) Project Management. The project duration is 5 years commencing from year 2009. Total project cost is estimated at UA50.92 million.

Project Objectives

The overall sector goal of the project is to contribute to poverty reduction and economic growth in Uganda through enhanced commercialization of agriculture. Its specific objectives are to enhance farmers’ access to markets, attract competitive prices and increased incomes through improvements in rural infrastructures and their management by well mobilized communities.


The project will benefit a population of 5.3 million from 1.02 million households (or 18.5% of the 2007 national projected population). It is expected to increase the volume of agricultural produce marketed by 45% and increase household incomes by 50% at completion.
