    The objective of this NAMA is to trigger resilient low-carbon development in the dairy sector through the introduction of climate-smart agricultural practices and to bring the dairy production sector of Uganda onto a low carbon and more resilient path.

    Activities: (2017 - 2022)
    Climate-smart agriculture in the dairy sector combines three objectives:

    • sustainably increasing agricultural milk productivity and incomes
    • adapting and building resilience to climate change along the milk production value chain
    • reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

    In this case, the mitigation measures that will be considered under climate-smart resilient agriculture are those that reduce emissions from enteric fermentation and animal manure management.

    This NAMA is expected to consist of 4 individual commercially driven business modules implemented by individual farmers and cooperatives, as well as private sector participants:

    • Feed production
    • Hay production
    • Purchase of certified milk from farmers
    • Biodigester business

    The MAAIF will provide the necessary training, capacity-building, and awareness-raising to key stakeholders such as cooperatives in a train-the-trainers approach to allow for scale and replication of the NAMA interventions. Farmers’ organizations, cooperatives, or groups will be provided with the knowledge and skills to train the individual participating farmers of the NAMA. This will be a train-the-trainers activity for proper feeding strategies, use of quality feeds, diet manipulation, and use of hay, among others. The organizations, cooperatives, or groups will be tasked to disseminate awareness to farmers about the economic benefits of participating in the NAMA.
