Rapid Rural Appraisal Report of Northern Uganda


A rapid rural appraisal (RRA) was carried out by the CIAT-IITA team in northern Uganda between 18th February and 1st March 2014. The RRA aimed to assess within and between district variations in farming systems and agricultural management practices in order to guide strategic agricultural investments and projects. The RRA used key-informant interviews, participatory workshops, transect walks, village and farm visits, as well as gender-disaggregated methods to gather information on important agriculture- related features and constraints faced by farmers.
