A ground-breaking project focusing on sustainable agriculture practices and knowledge sharing in Western Uganda has been announced as the winner of the UL Sustainability Challenge.

Rebecca Tumwebaze a PhD student at UL, used a bottom-up approach involving local matooke (green bananas) farmers, larger commercial farmers, agriculture specials and government officials to develop specific frameworks to encourage sustainable agriculture practices in the Rubaya region of Uganda.

Collaborative workshops were employed to enhance knowledge sharing among smallholder farmers, commercial farmers, technical agriculture specialists, government extension officers, non-governmental players, and private sector players.
