Policies for Improved Land Management in Uganda Project

Running from 1999 through 2003, IFPRI researchers, with a large set of Ugandan and international research partners, examined a range of issues to better inform polices for improved land management in Uganda in order to increase agricultural productivity, reduce poverty, and to ensure the sustainable use of natural resources. Among the specific objectives of the project were to identify the factors affecting land management and its linkages to agricultural productivity, poverty, and sustainability; to identify strategies to promote more productive, sustainable, and poverty-reducing pathways of development and land management; and to strengthen the capacity of collaborators in Uganda to develop and implement such strategies, based upon policy research.
