Uganda was selected as the focus country in East Africa and PPLPI
initiated activities in Uganda in April 2004. Uganda not only represents
a typical sub-Saharan African economy with a high level of rural poverty
and a relatively large number of livestock-dependent poor, but the
current political climate also offers good prospects for pro-poor
livestock policy reform, as shown by the endorsement of the Poverty
Eradication Action Plan (PEAP) and the Plan for Modernisation of
Agriculture (PMA). Engagement in Uganda could, therefore, provide an
important building block on which to promote wider pro-poor livestock
policy reforms in the region.
