Abstract

The paper examines the structure and functioning of the food market in Uganda and the role of the past reforms on food security; the trend in food production and consumption; market linkages; seasonality as well as recurrent crisis (shocks) that have affected the market. While at aggregate level, food production increased significantly, between 1987 and 2005, per capita food production and consumption decreased. Low production and consumption persist in areas that have suffered the 20-year long conflicts (including frequent droughts), yet limited gains can be seen in areas that experienced relative peace.
