Non-state actor’s statement on performance of the agriculture sector for the financial year 2019/2020,

The 10th JASAR of 2020 marks the 6th Non-State Actors (NSA) active participation in the JASAR processes. It however, comes in at the point where the agriculture sector is starting the implementation of the new ASSP III in the context of National Development Plan (NDP) III where the sector is significantly expected to contribute to the programme of agro industrialization. Further, more when the sector is faced with two emergent challenges of Corona Virus Disease – 19 (COVID 19) and Desert locusts on top of the now constant challenges like climate change. It therefore necessitates to not only look at the sector performance for the year 2019/20 but also reflecting on the sector readiness to tackle emergencies as and when they arise. This NSA Statement therefore, is multi-facetted, it provides for the sector performance for the Financial Year (FY) 2019/20 as part of the broader performance of the sector for the concluding Uganda National Agriculture Investment Plan of 2015/16 – 2019/20. The NSA Statement further provides a snapshot of the sector performance on the Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP) commitments as detailed within the various indicators designed in the Malabo framework and on specific Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Additionally, it presents a snapshot of the sector readiness towards building resilience of all actors in the sector towards emergencies. The key issues and recommendations provided in this statement focus on the agriculture sector in the next Agriculture Sector Development Plan (ASSP) III and not necessarily the next FY as it has been in the previous years.
