Final evaluation of the sustainable and equitable wealth creation programme in Uganda

Final evaluation of the sustainable and equitable wealth creation programme in Uganda

13 November 2014

This report summarises the overall objectives and findings of the five year Comic Relief funded ‘Sustainable and Equitable Wealth Creation in Amuria’ programme in Uganda. The programme ran from January 2010 to December 2014 and reached approximately 4,800 households.

The programme used a multifaceted agricultural approach to better livelihoods: improving seeds and production techniques; introducing a livestock project with draught power and improved sheep, goat and chicken cross breeding components; creating collective market practices and a village savings and loan association (VSLA).

A disaster risk reduction component was built into the programme in the form of diversification of crops and incomes — enabling farmers to continue to thrive in the face of climate based challenges.

The programme excelled in empowering highly vulnerable households to increase their food production, even throughout ‘drought’ years, which enabled them to invest in healthcare and education as well as alternative means of income generation.
