Lasting Solutions to End Hunger: A Ugandan Perspective 

 
InterAction and ActionAid invite you to an informal discussion on “Lasting Solutions to End Hunger: A Ugandan Perspective.” As food prices continue to rise throughout eastern Africa and the world, Ugandan farmers, who are supposed to be the food suppliers are being hit the hardest and across Uganda food is becoming unaffordable. How can Ugandans and Africans find sustainable and lasting solutions to hunger with food price volatility so high? Agnes Kirabo will discuss from the perspective of small-scale women farmers in Uganda and the need for sustainable agriculture and land rights.
 
Speaker: Agnes Kirabo
