Wellspring was the Agri-Technology lead TA provider to UK government for the UK-Africa Investment Summit in 2019 and follow on activities. As part of this role we conducted a detailed study for DIT and DFID on the demand for Agri-Tech in Uganda, and the areas in which the UK is well-positioned to meet these demands. There was a strong focus on climate-smart technologies and the work supported preparations for the COP 26 United Nations climate change conference planned for 2020 in Glasgow, UK.
The study provides an authoritative, in-depth, market analysis document providing intelligence on the current Agri-Tech market in Uganda, assessing both market demand for Agri-Tech that can have major developmental impact, and the areas where UK has existing or high-potential competitive advantage to supply technology, alongside global comparators. The work also functions as a model for further Agri-Tech market studies strategy development.
