Sustainable Agriculture - Key to Inclusive Rural Transformation

A Comparative Study

Based on Empirical Evidence from 20 Years of MISEREOR Partner Efforts in Uganda Uganda’s small-scale farmers could successfully intensify their agriculture, ensure their food security all year round and increase their income. A study commissioned by Misereor/KZE shows that agro-ecological methods are particularly effective to overcome rural poverty. Based on a survey conducted on a total of 714 rural households in ten districts, the study compares smallholder farmers receiving agricultural advisory services by Misereor partner organisations with reference farmers and tea out-growers. With comparable asset endowment, the smallholders practicing an agro-ecological agriculture do best by comparison.
