At the request of the Ministry of Agriculture Animal Industries and Fisheries (MAAIF), and the government of Uganda, the Agricultural Risk Management Team (ARMT) of the World Bank Group, in collaboration with the Ugandan Dairy Development Authority (DDA), conducted a dairy supply chain risk assessment in Uganda. This report is the outcome of that assessment and is intended as an advisory note to MAAIF and DDA to enable them to identify a strategy and potential public investments to improve risk management practices in the dairy supply chain.

This report identifies the major risks facing the dairy supply chain, ranks them in terms of their potential impact and frequency, and offers a framework for improving risk management practices. The recommendations and findings will provide a basis for follow-up planning work by the government of Uganda, the World Bank, and other development partners.

The findings and analysis of this initial assessment are based on a methodology designed by ARMT for assessing risks in the agricultural supply chains. The assessment team followed a sequence of activities (Figure 1) while conducting the assessment.
