Summary for Project title: R8250: Decentralised market information service in Lira District, Uganda.

Over one million farmers in Uganda alone have benefited from the radio programme ‘Together to Market’. This series of 10 spots brings to life the main points and issues faced by farmers who seek to form groups to market their crops. It is designed to assist service-providers in advising them on marketing strategies and use of market information. It is estimated that one million more people have heard the program in Zambia, and an additional one to five thousand people through community telecentres in Africa, India and Latin America. CDs have also been widely distributed worldwide in response to requests.

The CD has the following information for this output: Description, Validation, Current Situation, Environmental Impact. Attached PDF (10 pp.) taken from the CD.
