Uganda: External Evaluation in the framework of the Food Sovereignty projects in UgandaClosing date: 2015-03-08Organization: Veterinarios Sin Fronteras Country: Uganda Closing date: 08 Mar 2015 Consultancy process External Evaluation in the framework of the Food Sovereignty projects in Uganda Project“*Improving access towater sources in the Teso region and strengthening the Ugandan peasant movement in the context of food sovereignty and gender equity*” funded by Gobierno Vasco-Eusko Jaurlaritza to the Spanish NGO Veterinarios sin Fronteras.-Global Food Justice. 1.INTRODUCCIÓN Veterinarios sin Fronteras.-Global Food Justice and Food Sovereignty Veterinarios sin Fronteras is a Non- Government Development Organisation (NGDO) that is associative in nature. Our vision: in our code of ethics it is defined as the achievement of a fair, equitable and caring society by means of a responsible and respectful solidarity. Our mission: to promote a fair rural development model in favour of Food Sovereignty and to generate the conscience of solidarity within society as a means towards social transformation. The political objective of Food Sovereignty can be approached from various angles – consumption, the environment, culture, etc. – but it has a clearly-defined core from which all of these radiate: farming production. For the most part, this is due to the origins of the term, which originated in 1996 from the La Via Campesina, an international network made up of small- and medium-scale farmers, livestock farmers, indigenous movements, landless workers, etc. whose common denominator is that they all work upon the production of food. Food sovereignty is the right of peoples to healthy and culturally appropriate food produced through ecologically sound and sustainable methods, and their right to define their own food and agriculture systems. It puts the aspirations and needs of those who produce, distribute and consume food at the heart of food systems and policies rather than the demands of markets and corporations. It defends the interests and inclusion of the next generation. It offers a strategy to resist and dismantle the current corporate trade and food regime, and directions for food, farming, pastoral and fisheries systems determined by local producers and users. Food sovereignty prioritizes local and national economies and markets and empowers peasant and family farmer driven agriculture, artisanal, fishing, pastoralist led grazing, and food production, distribution and consumption based on environmental, social and economic sustainability. Food sovereignty promotes transparent trade that guarantees just incomes to all peoples as well as the rights of consumers to control their food and nutrition. It ensures that the rights to use and manage lands, territories. 2.JUSTIFICATION VSF at institutional level is supporting Food Sovereignty struggles of peasant’s movements through proposals made by the groups themselves. In Uganda VSF has been working in TESO region for 14years, majorly through productive projects. This external evaluation is in the framework of the project“*Improving access towater sources in the Teso region and strengthening the Ugandan peasant movement in the context of food sovereignty and gender equity*” funded by Gobierno Vasco-Eusko Jaurlaritza to the Spanish NGO Veterinarios sin Fronteras.-Global Food justice. This project aims to contribute to the defence of the rights inherent to food sovereignty, to improve the quality of life and reducing gender inequities through action at local, regional and national level in Uganda. At local level, this initiative is implemented in rural communities in Amuria District, Teso region through the strengthening of local associations, capacity building and empowerment of peasants and rural women (water rights, land, access and control natural resources, sexual and reproductive rights, etc..), and contribute to sustainable access to safe water and basic sanitation. Also, the project contributes to capacity building of farmers in the Districts of Northern Uganda: Pader, Gulu, Amuru and Adjumani, and creates opportunities for dialogue among the peasantry of different districts for greater coordination and advocacy among peasants at national level. This project is part of the program initiated in 2006 Chain of Life which has taken 6 years supporting the community development process in Teso region and now has expanded its scope to provide more responses to the needs of men and women rural participants. The Specific Objective of the project is: to strength the articulation of the peasant movement in the region of Teso and in Uganda under the rights of food sovereignty and access, use and management of natural resources (water, land and biodiversity) and gender equity for advocacy. The results expected are the following ones: R.1. - Men and Women members of the 6 CBOs improve access, use and management of water resources and sanitation and hygiene practices. R.2.- Reinforced the empowerment of peasant women in 18 CBOs through the analysis of the collective rights and raising awareness of gender inequities and gender violence among peasants (men and women). R.3. - Supported TECLANET organization of the Teso region forward in its consolidation process as a second-level farmers' organization for the advocacy of Food Sovereignty. R.4.- The joint articulation of Ugandan farmers' organizations strengthens through a joint effort of analysis and the drafting and negotiation of proposals for Food Sovereignty and the right to access water, land and biodiversity and gender equity. 3.
