Communities in Uganda’s West Nile sub-region are taking innovative approaches to ensure food and nutrition security. Through initiatives like farmer field school (FFS), community seed banks, kitchen gardens, and cooking demonstration classes, they are rediscovering and utilizing Local Food Plants (LFPs) to improve their diets and economic stability. These efforts not only address food security but also promote sustainable agriculture, empower women, and build bridges between host and refugee communities, contributing to lasting peace and harmony. Additionally, the story emphasizes the importance of knowledge sharing, participatory research, and policy changes to create a more resilient and just food system in the face of challenges like climate change and limited access to quality seeds.
The community-led initiatives were featured in Vice Versa Global, to share local knowledge, raise awareness, and impart skills related to food security and climate-resilient agriculture to a broader audience.
