Special Reports


In the last decade of the 20th century NARO launched the Uganda Journal of\r\n Agricultural Sciences (UJAS). The journal was intended as one of the outlets for\r\n sharing erudite information on new developments in the agricultural and\r\n environmental sciences research sector with the various stakeholders.


This goal\r\n was partially achieved. Over the years there has been increased investment\r\n in agricultural sector, however information and knowledge sharing has been\r\n asymmetrical due to sub-optimal publication of the journal. This is inconsistent\r\n with the national and regional strategic plans that aim at transforming the\r\n food and the agricultural sector by 2040 in the case of Uganda. It is against\r\n this backdrop in information sharing that this strategy has been developed.
