A key informant’s survey (KIS) was undertaken in March 2015 to understand the
extension system in Uganda. The survey sought to determine the existing extension
structure, and approaches used by various agencies to disseminate agricultural
technologies, information and skills to farmers, as well as the policy context within which
such processes take place. The key informant interviews were conducted with
government extension staff at National, district and sub-county levels. Extension
personnel from Non-governmental Organizations (NGOs) were also interviewed.
Findings from this study will inform the ‘Trees for Food Security’ project on different
extension methods and their suitability in scaling up/out agroforestry practices in Uganda
