AGRICULTURE 

The Agricultural Sector has remained the most important sector in Uganda. The (FY 2014/15), the Agricultural Sector growth was 4.4 % with a contribution of 24% to the GDP largely accounted for by increased cash and food crop and production. Agricultural Sector alone remains the largest source of Uganda’s export earnings (48% FY 2014/15), averaging 53% per annum while employing 73% of the Ugandan population. Value addition in agricultural production can take different forms and levels ranging from the basic to more sophisticated level e.g. packaging, processing, cooling, drying, extracting or any other type of processes that differentiates the product from the original raw commodity.
Value addition in Uganda is mainly in cotton ginning, tea processing, coffee hauling, tobacco handling and processing, beverages, wheat products and the fast growing diary, fruit processing, fruit drying, grain milling, meat processing, milk production and processing, leather tanning and fish processing. Value addition in agricultural products is the struggle and hope of economic development but it is hindered by lack of technical skills, lack of energy, standards and storage. Uganda government has put emphasis on developing transport infrastructure to move of commodities from production to consumption points in domestic and regional markets.
Uganda has put resources into Uganda National Bureau of Standards to solve quality and standards issues which impede access to profitable and standard sensitive markets like the European Union among others. Storage infrastructure is an area which being promoted by Uganda Investment Authority for stable supply of agricultural produce which is highly perishable and requires appropriate storage facilities.

Project Description [100 words]
Real Life Activation is a project that aims at making profits by improving people’s lives to prosper through Agriculture and other trade activities. Our work is to make people transform subsistence farming (growing for home consumption) to commercial farming. The project is aimed at making profits by changing people’s lives, improving their economic growth through poverty reduction, it has ensured food security and ultimately diversified Uganda’s export base. The project encourages farmers to work hard and we find market for their produce. There is market for everything that is produced in Uganda. We have registered networks of farmers who do both crop and animal husbandry for commercial purposes. We support our farmers to produce and we find market for their produce in and outside Uganda. As a project we benefit from both the farmer and the buyer as there is a percentage we get from each kilo of produce sold by the farmer and also get from the buyer that means we benefit if there is a lot of produce sold. We grouped our farmers in to associations in the different selected districts of the country and zoned them for different crops/activities according to their soil composition, fertility and environment. It is these groups that form the network of farmers that we have. The network ensures that we have produce to be sold all the time throughout the year. Our cycle begins with inspiring the farmers with success stories, then we train them (capacity building), followed by giving technical support like carrying out soil testing, advise on the best seeds, we do follow up and lastly find buyers for their produce. Our operations are in 18 districts so far and we have over 10,000 members. We continuously meet with our farmers and we get over 400 people in attendance. Feedback Mechanism is practically very effective because we get immediate responses from them.
We work with farmers from advising them on what to plant, when, where, on which soil, we do field visits and then find market for their produce. We mainly grow cayenne, chili, hot chili, lettuce, white egg plants, sweet corn, maize, beans, bananas, soya beans, water melon, pumpkin, cabbage, green cabbage, Chinese cabbage, pawpaw, jack fruit, onions, tomatoes, fish farming mainly tilapia and cat fish and others. We produce large quantities of these every week for domestic and export market throughout the year and most of it is organic.

Economic and social benefits of the Project
Benefits create a sustainable economy constructing 80 Honey Houses in 8 districts in Mt. Elgon. Each Honey House will manage six beef arms extracting 2,160-2,600 MT p.a. valued at $5,500 USD per ton. Africa’s Choice will employ 540 beekeepers per cluster and 100,000 indirect workers for this industry.
Other useful information
The land for the model Honey House has been selected and the bee farms approved by Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA) to establish and operate commercial beefarms inside the Park. And to construct seven buildings totalling 28,417sf along with a micro-grid that will provide the level of solar power required to operate the Honey House and any other villagers and their households and businesses in surrounding communities.

The model Honey House can extract appx 5,400 frames per day to start doubling in volume as demand grows from the Out-Growers. Each Honey House is expected to extract and package in barrels, or filter and bottle on-site as Pure Raw Honey, with earning potential at $11,880,000 USD per annum.

It is forecast that within 5 years, we will be operating 12 Honey Houses in Mt. Elgon with plan to reach 80 houses within 10-12 years extracting over 200,000MT per annum at a value at over $1.2bn per annum.

Buyers are signing for variety of bottles (wide and narrow neck) for their retail outlets. At capacity, Africa’s Choice Honey can deliver sufficient honey to meet demand for 120 or more buyers with large networks in 17 or more countries.

Impact of this industry and the retention of the wages and majority of profits within Eastern Uganda will stimulate the economy and transform the communities to better their operations at all levels.

It is the largest mountain range in Africa (120km long /65Km wide) with an altitude range of 1600m to 5109m above Sea Level making it the highest Mountain in Uganda and third in Africa. The highest point (Magharita peak) stands at 5109 meters above sea level. Other Rwenzori ranges with peaks of great significance include; Speke (4890m), Baker (4843m), Gess (4715m), Emin (4797m), Luigi de Savio (4627m) and Alexandria (5,083m). These mountain ranges are unique for they are not volcanic but do rise directly from the rift valley floor.

The mountain, gazetted as a national park is home to diverse vegetation (over 994 recorded plant species); diverse fauna (African elephants, Chimpanzees, Red fronted duikers, Rock hyrax, Rwenzori Leopard, Tree squirrels, over 217 recorded bird species- 17 of which are endemic to the park). The fauna and flora richness, scenic beauty, Glacier lakes, rivers and waterfalls, diverse rock types and snow-capped peaks give the park a unique geographical heritage and biodiversity importance which enabled its declaration into a World Heritage Site (WHS) and an Important Bird Area (IBA). In addition, the Rwenzori Landscape is well endowed with diverse local cultures and traditions.

Project Description
Polymer flooding is one of the most applicable enhanced recovery oil recovery methods in Petroleum production industry. Polymer flooding consists of mixing long chain polymer molecules with the injected water in order to increase the water viscosity. This method improves the vertical and areal sweep efficiency as a consequence of improving the water/oil mobility ratio. Studies have proved that with the application of EOR, 30 to 60 percent, or more, of the reservoir's original oil can be extracted, compared with 20 to 40 percent using primary and secondary recovery. In polymer flooding, a water soluble molecule is added to the flood water, thus increasing the water viscosity. Depending on the type of the polymer used, the effective permeability to water can be reduced in the swept zones. Polymer flooding does not reduce residual oil saturation, but is rather a way to reach the residual oil saturation more quickly or to allow it be reached economically.
In Uganda, Commercial oil reserves have been proven and a number of international companies are working on bringing production on stream although there is currently no oil and gas production However, research has revealed it that Uganda’s oil is waxy and viscous medium to heavy oil (5-1000cp) thus will need tertiary methods of production.
International Oil Companies have carriedout appraisal well tests on the possibility of application of Polymer flooding in extracting the waxy and viscous oil and results have turned out to be positive hence proposing its implementation. This project therefore aims at ascertaining the industrial production of the applicable suitable polymer in Uganda for this primary purpose and other large scale applications of this Polymer and will used the fund to setup a factory for the production of this polymer and research Centre for the initiative.

Other Applications of HPAM Other than EOR.
• It is highly water-absorbent, forming a soft gel when hydrated, used in such applications as polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, and can also be called ghost crystals when cross-linked, and in manufacturing soft contact lenses
• In the straight-chain form, it is also used as a thickener and suspending agent. More recently, it has been used as a subdermal filler for aesthetic facial surgery
• One of the largest uses for polyacrylamide is to flocculate solids in a liquid. This process applies to water treatment, and processes like paper making and screen printing.
• The cross-linked form which retains water is often used for horticultural and agricultural under trade names such as Broadleaf P4, Swell-Gel, and so on.
• The anionic form of linear, water soluble polyacrylamide is frequently used as a soil conditioner on farm land and construction sites for erosion control, in order to protect the water quality of nearby rivers and streams.
• The polymer is also used to make Gro-Beast toys, which expand when placed in water, such as the Test Tube Aliens. Similarly, the absorbent properties of one of its copolymers can be utilized as an additive in body-powder.
• The ionic form of polyacrylamide has found an important role in the potable water treatment industry. Trivalent metal salts, like ferric chloride and aluminum chloride, are bridged by the long polymer chains of polyacrylamide. This results in significant enhancement of the flocculation rate. This allows water treatment plants to greatly improve the removal of total organic content (TOC) from raw water.
• The primary functions of polyacrylamide soil conditioners are to increase soil tilth, aeration, and porosity and reduce compaction, dustiness and water run-off. Secondary functions are to increase plant vigor, color, appearance, rooting depth and emergence of seeds while decreasing water requirements, diseases, erosion and maintenance expenses. FC 2712 is used for this purpose.
Project Benefits to the Country
• The research aims at setting up a factory for large scale production of HPAM and this will add on the industrial vision of the country
• The project will support Uganda’s oil and gas industry for EOR processes
• The project will provide job opportunities to the nationals directly through; factory workers, product marketers and suppliers, export agents and indirectly for those using HPAM as a raw material
• The project will result into revenue for the country through export of HPAM and increase the government tax base

Environmental Concerns
 Concerns have been raised that polyacrylamide used in agriculture may contaminate food with acrylamide, a known neurotoxin. While polyacrylamide itself is relatively non-toxic, it is known that commercially available polyacrylamide contains minute residual amounts of acrylamide remaining from its production, usually less than 0.05% w/w.
 Additionally, there are concerns that polyacrylamide may de-polymerise to form acrylamide. In a study conducted in 2003 at the Central Science Laboratory in Sand Hutton, England, polyacrylamide was treated similarly as food during cooking. It was shown that these conditions do not cause polyacrylamide to de-polymerise significantly.
 In a study conducted in 1997 at Kansas State University, the effect of environmental conditions on polyacrylamide were tested, and it was shown that degradation of polyacrylamide under certain conditions can cause the release of acrylamide. The experimental design of this study as well as its results and their interpretation have been questioned, and a 1999 study by the Nalco Chemical Company did not replicate the results.

INFRASTRUCTURE

Uganda is a land linked country served by a network of 27,000 kilometers (16,800 miles) of roads, although only 1,800 kilometers (1,100 miles) are paved and 4,800 kilometers (2,900 miles) of the remainder are suitable for all-weather purposes. This road network supplied Uganda’s total 25,900 passenger cars and 42,300 commercial.
The state-owned Uganda Railways Corporation’s (URC) 1,241 kilometers (770 miles) of railroad has benefitted from a rejuvenation project since 1995. This government has embarked on the standard railway gauge from Tororo to Kasese.

The Entebbe International Airport is Uganda’s major airport, which is situated 35 kilometers (22 miles) from Kampala. Although there are another 28 airports throughout the country, the vast majority are unpaved.
The vast and varied waterways in Uganda are also highly beneficial for the production of hydroelectricity. The government intends to grant concessions to the private sector for the operation of generation, transmission, and distribution of electricity.

The telecommunication operators are in the country, Uganda Telecom Limited (UTL) and Mobile Telephone Network Uganda (MTN) and Airtel. Many more Internet service providers have been licensed to provide both Internet e-mail and Internet services.
Different Ministries, Urban and Local Authorities as well as government have investment opportunities as below:

Uganda through UIA has designed and is establishing the Kampala Industrial and Business Park (KIBP) at Namanve 12km on the Kampala/Jinja highway. This 2000 acres project is designed to provide easily accessible serviced land for industry and business establishment on the outskirts of the capital, Kampala. The Uganda to Mombasa railway line runs through the park, bulk water and power are being vailed to the park as government contribution to reduce the cost of serviced land to the expected industries and businesses thereby attracting quicker occupancy.

To provide the needed remaining roads, electricity and water reticulation systems, the current (2011) KIBP design plans show an indicative cost price of US$ 185 Million. Economic analysis of the project (subject to review) indicates that a concessional loan of this magnitude could be recovered over a period of 15 years from leases and space rentals in this industrial park.

HEALTHCARE

 Uganda’s healthcare system is divided into national and district-based levels. At the national level are the national referral hospitals, regional referral hospitals, and semi-autonomous institutions including the Uganda Blood Transfusion Services, the National Medical Stores, the Uganda Public Health Laboratories and the Uganda National Health Research Organization (UNHRO).

The district-based health system consists of Village Health Teams (VHTs) who are voluntary community health workers who deliver predominantly health educationpreventive services, and simple curative services in communities and constitute level 1 health services.  Health Center 2 (HCII) offer outpatients services and is run by a qualified nurse and are intended to serve 5,000 people. Health Center 3 (HCIII) which serve 10,000 people and provide in addition to HC II services also provide in patient, simple diagnostic, and maternal health services and are managed by a clinical officer. Above HC III is the Health Center IV, run by a medical doctor and providing surgical services in addition to all the services provided at HC III. HC IV is also intended to provide blood transfusion services and comprehensive emergency obstetric care.

 The current funding of US$ 27 per capita per annum expenditure on health care is far below the US$ 44 per capita recommended. Most donor aid is not harmonized and aligned to the sector plan and managed off-budget. Private out-of-pocket expenditure, total public and private health expenditure per capita on health is still high.

 A comprehensive review of Uganda’s Healthcare System shows strengths and weaknesses in the health sector. In summary the assessment shows that whereas significant efforts are being implemented to qualitatively and quantitatively improve healthcare in Uganda, more needs to be done to focus on the poor, improve engagement of the private-for-profit sector, enhance efficiency, strengthen stakeholder coordination, improve service quality, and stimulate consumer-based advocacy for better health.
