As it’s well known that he who has no voice cannot be heard. It is important to have the right information and the capacity to relay it to the right forum. Therefore ESAFF Uganda develops capacities of its membership to achieve the strategic goal of the organization while at the same time address issues that affect small scale farmers.
ESAFF Uganda has built networks with likeminded organizations to influence policies jointly since advocacy is sometimes about numbers. ESAFF Uganda is also a member of many networks, forums and coalitions of organizations pushing for small scale farmers views at national and regional levels.
ESAFF Uganda increases the participation of small scale farmers in policy planning and implementation through availing information on agriculture policies and processes that affect them. Through policy analysis and research ESAFF Uganda has been able to ensure that policies are coherent and address the typical issues that affect small scale farmers. ESAFF Uganda also engages policy makers on issues affecting the agricultural sector through platforms and under this ESAFF has managed to influence different policies at local, national and regional levels.
