Water-Smart Agriculture in Uganda
This case study is part of a series of TOPS Agriculture and Natural Resource Management case studies.
Smallholder farmer’s in Otuke, Uganda had low capacity to adopt water-smart agriculture and there was a strong need for the government to support less-costly and more effective water use system. To address the disconnect between farmer needs and government priorities, the GWI-EA program promoted an integrated water resource management (IWRM) approach—a coordinated effort among all stakeholders to manage water effectively, including water for increased agricultural production. This approach was carried out through demand-responsive activities with Learning Practice Alliances (LPA).
