This is one of 280 summaries describing key outputs from the projects
run by DFID's 10-year Renewable Natural Resources Research Strategy
Principally based on Project ZB0380. National Agricultural Advisory and
Development Services (NAADS) in Uganda are finding it easy to get their
hands on relevant up-to-date information that addresses farmers'
problems thanks to the MPAIS Portal. This privately operated web-based
market place for agricultural information makes existing extension
materials readily accessible. It acts as a virtual trading environment
for agricultural information and market service providers in Uganda. The
service providers received training in information management and
tailored the content to benefit poor households in the pilot districts
in Uganda. New users from other districts are coming on board, and
several countries in the East African region have shown interest in
joining the MPAIS Portal.
