    • Brief economic, trade and social profile of the agriculture sector in Uganda: trends in total and main crop-wise production, agricultural exports and imports, formal and informal employment in agriculture, rural poverty, and land tenure system. (Annual time series for the last ten years or so)
    • Trends in agricultural productivity: developments in the productivity of main crops in the last ten years. Trends in livelihood status: poverty levels and indicators, nutrition and food security status, and human development index in the last ten years.
    • Landlockedness and trade facilitation issues: identification of main physical, infrastructural and institutional constraints due to landlockedness and under-developed trade facilitation measures particularly as they relate to agricultural sector; description of key corridor projects
    • Policy framework: key features of development, trade, agriculture and trade facilitation policies and their linkages

    • Questions:
    • What are the existing positive and negative linkages among agricultural productivity, trade in agriculture, trade facilitation and landlockedness, and rural livelihoods?
    • How well are these linkages understood? How can the understanding of these linkages be improved among policy makers and relevant stakeholders?
