Project General Description

The proposed Community Agricultural Infrastructure Improvement Programme – Project 3 (CAIIP-3) is a follow-on other existing production oriented programmes such as NAADS, the Farm Income Enhancement Programme, namely, CAIIP-1 and CAIIP-2. The overall CAIIP concept and design originated from the Bank?s review of Uganda?s agriculture and rural sector in 2005. The review recommended increased investment in community agricultural infrastructure within the framework of the PMA Pillars where major financing gaps had been identified. CAIIP-3 is thus the third instalment in a series of CAIIP projects geared toward enhancing development, market access, productivity and income growth across rural Uganda. The project consists of three components, namely: (i) Rural Infrastructure Improvement (ii) Community Mobilization and (iii) Project Management. Project operations are expected to commence in 2011 and run for 5 years. The total project cost, not including taxes and duties, is estimated at UA40 million, of which the Bank will finance 100%. With its implementation, CAIIP will have covered all regions in Uganda with the exception of Karamoja and some districts in the West Nile.

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 increase incomes through improvements in rural infrastructure and infrastructure management by well mobilized communities.


Le CAIIP-3 couvrira 68 sous-comtés répartis entre 31 districts dans les régions Ouest, Centre, Nord et Est de l’Ouganda. La population totale des 31 districts sélectionnés, estimée à 10 millions (51,4 % de femmes), en constitue les principaux bénéficiaires. Ce chiffre correspond à peu près à 1,9 million de ménages, soit environ 29,9 % de la population du pays.
