Abstract

Research on the non-farm rural economy was conducted in Uganda over the period October 2000- January 2001. Qualitative and quantitative data and information gathered from two districts, Kumi in the East and Rakai in the Central Region have been used to build on the findings of national surveys and relevant Uganda-specific literature. This paper aims to draw out and synthesise findings from the primary and secondary data sources regarding the importance of the non-farm economy differentiated by sex. Beyond simply the dissaggregation of findings, the paper aims to investigate the gender implications of differing occupational, income, ownership and opportunity patterns, with a view to highlighting relevant policy implications.
