The ‘Expanding Utilization of RTB and Reducing Their Postharvest Losses’ (RTB-ENDURE) project has been implemented in Uganda for the last three years (2014-2016). The goal of the project was to contribute to improved food security and incomes for RTB-producing communities in East Africa; and the interventions embraced various market chain actors and stakeholders along the RTB value chains. Towards project closure, it was considered necessary to share project results with stakeholders; build a consensus on project achievements and chart a way forward. An end of project workshop was thus conducted on the 7th and 8th of December 2016, at the Imperial Golf Course Hotel, Entebbe, Uganda. The workshop was attended by 101 participants (38 F, 63 M) representing various stakeholders including officials from donor/funding agencies, national and international research organizations and universities; implementing partners, private sector players and farmers (Annex 1). This report provides a synthesis of the workshop proceedings.
