Case 1: Climate Smart banana production brings cash, respect and creates opportunities for Farmers
Elias Mbidde is a member of the Zirobwe Agaliawamu Agribusiness Training Association (ZAABTA). Through a farmer exchange visit, Elias learned Climate Smart agriculture techniques to produce bananas.
The project I am currently coordinating is aimed at “increasing production and consumption of micronutrient rich foods and utilisation of community based nutrition services in small holder households in the project areas”
The project targets UPE government Aided Primary schools as the entry points for the technology pathways and covers also the parents around those schools.
The main target beneficiaries of the project are the children under two years and the school going children especially those at primary levels, the pregnant mothers and the lactating mothers.
