The Challenge of Food Security in Africa: How Uganda has managed to achieve it

The World Food Summit of 1996 defined food security as a condition whereby all people in a given place at all times have access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food to maintain a healthy and active life. Due to lack of Food Security many people in more than half of the African countries are exposed to hunger every year, often leading to malnutrition and death. Sometime back, however, the Food and Agriculture Organisation, FAO, praised Uganda for achieving Food Security. In the following interview conducted by John Baptist Tumusiime, Professor Gilbert Bukenya, a Member of the Uganda Parliament and former Vice President of Uganda, explains how Uganda has managed to succeed where many African nations have failed.
