In addition to the Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Industry and Fisheries (MAAIF) and the Ministry of Health (MOH) which are the food and nutrition line ministries, other institutions represented on the UFNC include the: Ministry of Gender, Labour, and Social Development (MGLSD); Ministry of Finance, Planning, and Economic Development (MFPED); Ministry of Education and Sports (MOES); Ministry of Local Government (MLG); Uganda National Bureau of Standards (UNBS); Ministry of Trade, Tourism and Industry (MTTI); the Plan for Modernization of Agriculture (PMA); Institutions of Higher Leaning; Civil Society Organisations (CSO); Farmers groups; and the Private Sector.
Food and nutrition security data is a component of the Uganda Demographic and Health Survey (UDHS) performed by the Uganda Bureau of Statistics (UBOS), a semi-autonomous institution under the Ministry of Finance, Planning, and Economic Development (MFPED).
Other information systems relevant for assessing the human right to adequate food in Uganda include the "Household Budget Survey" (HBS) conducted by the MFPED, "Early Warning and Food Information Systems" (EWFIS) conducted by the Gender and Early Warning Unit in the MAAIF, in coordination with the Meteorology Department and the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM).
Essentially, right to food capacity building platforms need to be strengthened and streamlined into the education curriculum, using a collaborative approach involving the Uganda Human Rights Commission (UHRC), Parliament, the Ministry of Finance, Planning, and Economic Development (MFPED), Civil Society and other ministries represented on the ad hoc UFNC.
