Bidco - Empowering Farmers and Diversifying Agriculture

We visit Kalangala, where Bidco’s Soil to Pan Philosophy is being put to action. Here we learn how empowering farmers and diversifying agriculture is contributing to the region’s socio economic development. Meeting the farmers and community members whose lives have been enriched by these agricultural opportunities, this story explores the partnerships created for best practice development and document the journey of these committed stakeholders and their roles in enabling inclusive growth.
Full Story - Bugala Island in the Kalangala district on Lake Victoria was once one of the most remote and poorest areas in Uganda. With little to no infrastructure, locals relied on subsistence farming and fishing. With dwindling fish stocks there was little potential for growth; however, the successful implementation of an Oil Palm project has brought public and private investors together and also nurtured the interests of small-scale local farmers turning this island into an economic hub.

Vignette - Bidco and the Ugandan government introduced the trial version of a now massive oil palm project, and refer to it as the four p's project: the public, private, people project with the main objective being poverty alleviation.
