The “Resilient Efficient Agribusiness Chains” (REACH-Uganda) project seeks to improve the availability and uptake of public and private support services related to core commodity value chains, with infrastructure being one of the services. As the roads link the established farmers to the markets, the REACH-Uganda project, realized that Road Water Management is the best practice to avoid damages on roads and to protect the farms along the roads from road run-off. MetaMeta Research was contracted by IFDC, who is the implementing entity of REACH-Uganda to conduct a field assessment and find opportunities for water management along the roads for 18.1 km road in Rubanda District. In this report, based on our findings from the field, we propose interventions that will ensure that water from roads is well managed, used to improve farmers’ agricultural yields and make the community along the 18.1km Ihanga-Kyamabare-Butobore-Nyaruhanga road in Rubanda District more resilient.
