Market Scoping Study for the Digitization of the Fish Value Chain in Uganda

This resource appears in:

This report shares insights from a market scoping study for the digitization of the fish value chain in Uganda. The study was intended to explore opportunities where digitization - especially digital financial services (DFS) - can add value and positively impact the lives and productivity of actors in the fish value chain. The study was commissioned by the United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) and it focused on: conducting a value chain analysis in order to understand the key actors involved and their roles; economic impact of the different activities in the value chain; an analysis of the state of financial services / digital financial services in the value chain. Similarly, the study also centered on carrying out a gap analysis to assess the unmet needs associated with access to financial services, coping mechanisms and how DFS can provide solutions.

125 stakeholders including fishers, boat owners, fishmongers, fish processors were interviewed. Equally, other key actors from the supply side including financial services providers, technology companies, traders and other macro actors like the Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Industry and Fisheries and the donor community were interviewed.
