Governments around the world seek to create programs that will support sustainable agriculture and achieve food security, yet they are faced with uncertainty, system complexity and data scarcity when making such choices. We propose decision modeling as an innovative approach to help meet these challenges and offer a case study to show the effectiveness of the tool. The authors use decision analysis tools to model the possible nutrition-related outcomes of the Ugandan government’s long term agricultural development plan termed ‘Vision 2040.
