Uganda smallholder pig value chain site scoping report: Lira, Kibaale and Hoima districts
MetadataShow full item record
The site scoping exercise was conducted between 23rd June and 18th July 2014. It mainly involved farmer field visits, by ILRI’s Uganda pig value chain projects team to identify the pig value chain domains that exist in the three districts (Lira, Hoima and Kibaale) that were selected through a scoring exercise by stakeholders for further pig value chain work during the inception workshop of the Irish Aid-funded smallholder pig project on “More pork by and for the poor: Catalysing emerging smallholder pig value chains in Uganda for food security and poverty reduction”. Details of the district selection process are documented in the workshop report1. In the Western region, stakeholders of the inception workshop selected both Hoima and Kibaale districts for the pig value chain work while in the Northern region, Lira was top scored. Since only 2 districts were to be selected as additional project areas, part of the objective of the site scoping exercise was to prioritise selection of one of the two districts in the Western region and provide a rationale.
