Improving the livelihoods of small-scale sweetpotato farmers in Central Uganda through a crop post harvest-based innovation system

The sweetpotato coalition project focused on improving the livelihood of small-scale farmers through the introduction of post harvest technologies, identification of markets and establishment of links as entry points for improving market access. The project purpose was to sustainably reduce post harvest losses, diversify value added products and increase household incomes. The approach used was to promote adoption of research outputs, while developing an innovation system that enhances farmers’ access to markets and information. A multidisciplinary team of 12 partners from different organisations implemented the project.
