Performance Monitoring and Evaluation Framework for National Adaptation Plan for Agriculture (NAP-Ag)
Agriculture is the biggest pre-occupation for the majority of Ugandans, providing a source of income and livelihood for over 76% of the population. Most of the agriculture is dependent on rain and relative fertile soils. However, high population increase, climatic variability and poor agricultural practices have placed growing pressure on land leading to soil degradation and a slow growth in the agriculture sector. Climate change affects agricultural production in a diverse and complex manner.
The 2017 Unbreakable report made the case that disaster losses disproportionately affect poor people. The report showed that they have limited ability to cope with disasters, and estimated that the impact on well-being is equivalent to consumption losses of about $520 billion a year around the world—outstripping previous estimates of pure asset losses by as much as 60 percent.
