In an interview with Chimp Reports, Dr. Festus Bagoora, a natural resource specialist at National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) noted that this is a new concept that has come as a result of the impact of climatic change on the food production in the country.


“This policy takes into account the need for increased food productivity and climate change adoption,” noted Bagoora.


He called upon government to provide support to farmers in order to adopt the new policy.


“Government must empower farmers by importing subsidized farming tools, seeds and fertilizers among other things if this policy is to succeed,’’ he added.


Consequently according to this policy, climatic change adaptation policies like use of improved technology, irrigation, and labor saving technology would be used by the farmers in Uganda.


The policy would also take into account the use of fertilizers, conservation of the soil and increased yield per unit area hence improving food security in the country.


The dialogue was attended by Prof. Ephraim Kamuntu, Minister for Water and Environment, Jim Muhwezi, Syda Bumba and Hon. Vincent Ssempijja among others.
