THE ROLE OF ORGANIC AGRICULTURE IN UGANDA AS A SOUTH-SOUTH SOLUTION TO CLIMATE CHANGE AND FOOD SECURITY Organic agriculture offers a valuable solution to the challenges of food security and climate change particularly in its promotion of more sustainable forms of agricultural production. Over the last 20 years, Uganda has made significant strides in promoting organic agriculture. It is now provides a centre of knowledge for other developing countries including Zambia, Rwanda, Kenya and Nigeria, and is extending its technical support in the spirit of South-South Cooperation. As a solution, organic agriculture is easily replicable in the developing countries, particularly in Africa. Importantly, replication does not require expensive technological investment, but practical demonstrations. Organic agriculture is inherently adaptable to the African rural setting.
