Food Security & Agribusiness
This is the Economic Arm of KRC that facilitates rural farmers in the Rwenzori Region and beyond to use available resources to improve their own livelihoods. The unit facilitates small holder farmers including refugees with knowledge, skills and financial resources for sustainable transformation from subsistence into market oriented production. The unit promotes 6 value chains i.e. Coffee, Bananas, Maize, Vegetables, Cassava and legumes. FAGRIB also facilitates a Food Change Lab which is a multi-actor initiative that addresses malnutrition challenges at household level and promotes sustainable food systems in Uganda. It endeavors to bring lost foods (indigenous foods) back onto the dining table.
