This learning brief is part of a series bringing together experiences and lessons learned from the Nuyok Resilience Food Security Activity (2017–2023). The briefs are designed for practitioners, including local government representatives, civil society organizations, and other actors working on natural resources management, sanitation, and livelihoods-related issues.
This learning brief highlights how the Rural Entrepreneur Access Project (REAP)—piloted over a 2-year period in Napak District of Karamoja, Uganda—increased household incomes, food consumption levels, savings, and women’s agency in household decision-making and ownership and control of assets. The findings, conclusions, and lessons learned from this pilot can help a range of practitioners, including local government representatives, civil society organizations, policy makers, and donors engaged in the planning and allocation of resources for sustainable food and nutrition security among ultra-poor populations.
