Uganda: Policies for Improved Soil Nutrient Management, Output Trading Survey Dataset, 1999-2002

Short Name: 
UGA Output Trading Survey Dataset 

The objective of the project has been to assess the impact of different casual factors and identify effective policy strategies to combat soil nutrient depletion problem in the highlands of Uganda. The research has utilized market, community, and household surveys to measure the impact of past and present policies on soil nutrient management in the Ugandan highlands; and developed market and household level models, based on the survey data, to evaluate the impacts of alternative policy options. This survey is one of the three surveys conducted to analyze the market and land degradation linkages. A total of 544 output traders were sampled, which, due to the thinness of Ugandan input markets, included all licensed traders in most of the regions.
