The Feed the Future Uganda Inclusive Agricultural Marketing (FtF IAM) Activity, is a USAID-funded, five-year Activity, implemented by DAI Global LLC, USA, and its strategic partners Market Share Associates and TechnoServe. FtF IAM interventions are aimed at increasing incomes and improving the livelihoods of households. These interventions are being achieved through agriculture-led inclusive economic growth in 38 districts across the four regions of Uganda: Western, Eastern, Northern, Karamoja sub-region and selected refugee hosting districts, using a market system development approach. The Activity focuses investments on cross market functions that enhance systems change. The Activity partners with agribusiness firms, government of Uganda institutions, and market actor associations by aligning incentives and creating opportunities for these partners to invest in developing the market system that is economically viable, inclusive, and resilient. The Activity seeks collaboration with other development partners, civil society organizations, and the Government of Uganda (GOU) to address other constraints to the agriculture market system.
The Activity was designed to contribute to USAIDâs Global Food Security Strategy (GFSS) Uganda Country plan goal of reducing hunger, malnutrition, and poverty; and the USAID/Ugandaâs Country Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS 2016 - 2021) Development Objective three (DO3): âKey systems more accountable and responsive to Ugandaâs development needsâ, and the new CDCS (2022-2027) Development Objective three (DO2): Resilient Growth Enhanced.
The purpose of this mid-term evaluation is to examine the extent to which the FtF IAM Activity has achieved the intended results and provide lessons learnt and recommendations for future programming, including new Activity designs and scaling into the resilience zone.
