Markets and Agriculture Trade Improvement Project (MATIP)

MATIP contributes to the agricultural Chapter of the NDP specifically towards improved market access and infrastructure development.

Objectives:

  • To contribute to poverty reduction and economic growth in Uganda through enhanced marketing of     Agricultural produce and other merchandise
  • To create opportunities for people to generate and/or raise their incomes
  • To create additional working space and improved working conditions in selected markets by providing better structures, proper access, proper drainage, water, electricity and general amenities
  • To reduce street vending and illegal markets, which have caused many roads in the city being blocked almost half way and causing traffic jam
  • To increase revenue collection by urban councils
  • To reduce solid waste management by illegal markets and street vendors, which usually cause blockage of road drains and make maintenance expensive.
