This 15 months project seeks to increase policy debates and evidence uptake for the enhancement of productive and decent jobs along selected agro-industrialization (AGI) value chains in Uganda. The project is implemented under the African Policy Dialogues (APD), a network of policy actors initiated by the INCLUDE Platform to encourage the use of existing and new knowledge in policy making in Africa.
The project seeks to generate and share evidence on opportunities, sources of productive and decent employment, and effective strategies to promote job creation along the strategic agro-industrialization (AGI) value chains in Uganda. It also seeks to establish if immigrant labourers who return from abroad can easily be absorbed into AGI value chains, using the skills and transferring the know-how they have attained. The evidence generated will be used to inform and guide the revision of the 2011 National Employment Policy.
