The USAID Uganda Feed the Future (FTF) Commodity Production and Marketing Activity will sustainably increase production and marketing of highquality maize, beans, and coffee in 34 FTF focus districts. Districts were selected using several criteria, including production potential of three priority crops, presence of market infrastructure, and districts where the USAID Livelihoods and Enterprises for Agricultural Development project focused.
A changing climate poses great risks to the well-being of the Ugandan population by threatening natural resources and the livelihoods of those who depend on them.

Rising temperatures and changes in rainfall patterns are already being observed and projections indicate that these changes are likely to continue.
