Summary note:
"This study addresses the role the food bank plays in food security, sustainable livelihoods and building resilience to climate change among smallholder farmers in Uganda, and in particular, eastern Uganda. Currently, it is difficult to measure the socioeconomic impact of the food bank on smallholder farmers in eastern Uganda due to the difficulty of isolating its contribution from that of interrelated programmes and farming activities. It is, however, evident that the food bank plays a significant role in improving the smallholder farmers' food production incomes. The food bank is actively engaged in training smallholder farmers in modern farming methods, providing improved seeds and safe storage for farmers' produce, helping farmers to diversify their livelihood sources and providing climate-related information. ..." -- Abstract.
