I joined CABI in February 2014 as a Communication and Extension Scientist. In this role I focus on leading projects implementation in aspects of development of communication materials for various stakeholders and extension, and coordinating CABI activities in Uganda.
My experience spans from implementing projects involving smallholder farmers’ institutional capacity development for improvement of agricultural production, commercialization of proven technologies, linkage to input, financing and output markets across the East African community.
My work has involved working with multi-disciplinary organizations and teams ranging from local and international NGOs and CBOs, National and International Research Institutes, Universities, Ministries of Agriculture and national institutions, private sector firms, Microfinance institutions, local governments and farmer institutions across the East African community. In addition, I also have experience in managing and implementing agricultural competitive funds for research, dissemination and commercialization for smallholder agricultural development.
Before joining CABI I worked with Kilimo Trust, Uganda National Agricultural Research Organisation (NARO), FARM-Africa, Winrock International and the then GTZ.
