Uganda – Investment in Developing Export Agriculture (IDEA)
TMG conducted a major project evaluation of IDEA, which was managed by Chemonics International. The goal of IDEA was to increase rural household incomes through increased production and marketing of selected non-traditional agricultural exports (NTAEs) and selected food product. TMG fielded a team of five expatriate and local consultants to review the major achievements and impacts of the project and identify major lessons learned. TMG also provided programming guidance to the USAID mission with respect to the remaining 18 months left on the project, and inform new USAID projects coming on line at the time, particularly the Agricultural Productivity and Enhancement Program (APEP) and the Uganda Trade Revitalization and Diversification of Exports Project (U-TRADE).
