The primary goal of the Ugandan Grain Development Project is to create a sustainable business model for 6,000 smallholder farmers to get access to knowledge, inputs and a market for their maize production, and thus maximize both quality and volume currently being supplied to Agilis (www.agilis-partners.com) over three years.
The UGDP’s objectives are four-fold;
1. Enable smallholders to expand maize production, increase quality, and access pre-financing to buy quality inputs while providing a ready market for their maize.
2. Provide farmers with an organized digital marketplace where they can sell agricultural produce and buy quality inputs.
3. Improve and streamline processes in Agilis’ commercial farm to accelerate growth and expand production of maize, soybean, and sunflower.
4. Advise Agilis on IFC's Performance Standard 5 on Land Acquisition and Involuntary Resettlement.
From the company's website:
Agilis is a food and agriculture enterprise that exists to empower Ugandans to feed Africa.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IFC/MIGA
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
