Review of the Uganda National Industrial Policy: Synopsis of Incorporating Climate Change for Agro-processing

This paper aims to inform the finalization of Uganda’s National Industrial Policy, by proposing provisions that can support climate-aware agro-processing in the country. Uganda has embraced agro-processing as one of the key avenues to achieving its long term industrialization agenda, and has already been taking policy measures in this regard. However, in a world of accelerating climate change and global value chains, synergies are required across the policy landscape to ensure that agro-processing development is climate-aware, trade-driven and food security-enhancing.
