The International Rescue Committee (IRC) has sponsored a number of public events in northern Uganda to promote improved access to markets for farmers who are re-establishing their livelihoods after having spent years in displaced person’s camps. The “Farmer Field Days,” held in December and January, attracted over 2,500 farmers and offered many their first chance to display and sell goods since they were displaced by war. The events are part of a program funded by the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA) to help stimulate economic growth, and revitalize the agriculture and livestock industry in northern Uganda.
