Background ESAFF - Uganda
The formation of ESAFF in 2002 was a direct response to the need to create a forum where Small Scale Farmers (SSFs) are able to deliberate on and voice their concerns. The forum was established to bring together small scale crop farmers, pastoralists and traditional fisher folk into a social movement to build common aspirations, learning and linkages.
ESAFF Uganda is a small scale farmer initiated and farmer-led movement formed to facilitate processes through which smallholder farmers’ development concerns can be solicited, articulated and ultimately addressed through local, national, regional and international policies and programmes.
ESAFF Uganda works to enhance the SSFs ability to make informed decisions and participate meaningfully in development processes through capacity building, advocacy, research, networking and institutional development.
