Enhancing Agro-Industry for Productive and Decent Work for Youth and Women In Uganda: The Case for Fish and Cotton Value Chains

This study uses desk reviews, secondary data, and qualitative (Barazas forums and key informants) approaches to answer questions on the nature of jobs (old and potential), skills and technology requirements and investment opportunities in two critical value chains of fish and cotton. In addition, the study explores the extent to which the prevailing environment within each sector is conducive to facilitating the growth of these value chains. Of note is that the fish value chain is heterogeneous depending on the fish variety. In this study, we place emphasis on three lucrative fish varieties, i.e., Silver fish (mukene), Nile Perch (mpuuta) and Tilapia (ngege).
