Agribusiness Public-Private Partnerships: A country report of the United Republic of Uganda

This resource appears in:

In Africa, five countries were selected where the PPPs that promote agribusiness were reviewed. The purpose of the reviews was to learn how these PPPs were created and managed. Uganda is well- suited to be included in these African countries since it has agriculture as its economic backbone, and Uganda’s public policy focuses on agribusiness development. The Government of Uganda has embarked on enhancing PPPs to develop the agricultural industry. To this end, Uganda has experienced progress in the sector and overall economy.

This country appraisal looked at the development and implementation of agribusiness PPPs, both through literature reviews and interviews. Four public-private partnerships were studied in different sub-sectors: sunflower, fruit, seed supply, and oil palm processing. With the exception of the palm oil production partnership, the public-private partnerships studied in this report were between a single public actor and a single agribusiness enterprise. To concretize the partnerships, memorandums of understanding (MoU) were used.
