The Pearl Dairy Development Program aims to increase the productivity of smallholder dairy farmers in Uganda and transform them into competitive commercial dairy farmers. The Program has been designed and will be implemented together with Pearl Dairy, an IFC client in Uganda. The Program aims, in the next two years, to double supply of raw milk from participating dairy farmers and Pearl Dairy has committed to buy all the expected additional milk. The Program aims to achieve the following objectives:

2. Improve the productivity of 1,000 Pearl Dairy direct suppliers by at least 30% through adoption of best agricultural practices;
3. Scale up adoption of best agricultural practices through an outreach campaign targeting 5,000 farmers in Southern Uganda to improve their dairy practices.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IFC
The Compliance Advisor Ombudsman (CAO) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an IFC or MIGA- financed project. If you submit a complaint to the CAO, they may assist you in resolving a dispute with the company and/or investigate to assess whether the IFC is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. If you want to submit a complaint electronically, you can email the CAO at CAO@worldbankgroup.org. You can learn more about the CAO and how to file a complaint at http://www.cao-ombudsman.org/
