Abstract

This paper has been produced in the context of a DFID-funded research on sustainable agricultural marketing initiatives by Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) and Community-Based Organisations (CBOs). This research seeks to identify and disseminate best practices based on case study material from India and Uganda. Close collaboration and dialogue with NGOs and other stakeholders within both countries are essential elements of the project dissemination strategy. The paper is structured as follows. Section I describes the social, political, institutional and economic context for rw-al marketing activities in Uganda. Section II provides a general discussion of areas for potential market intervention and the roles of NGOs and CB Os in each of these areas. Sections Ill and IV cover two intervention areas which seem particularly relevant in the context of Uganda and the current research: market linkage promotion and support to farmer group formation and development for marketing. Section V contains an overview of the main issues covered throughout the paper as well as an introduction to institutional coalition analysis for market development. A list of references is included in Annex I. Finally, Annex II presents a theoretical categorisation of institutional groups that could interface with producer apex bodies.
