In February 2022, the parish development model (PDM) was launched by H.E the president of the republic of Uganda as a multi-sectoral strategy for transforming subsistence households into the money economy. The goal of PDM is to increase household food security, incomes and quality of life of Ugandan communities
The Parish Development Model targets 39% of Ugandan subsistence households or 16 million people who are in the subsistence economy.
The main aim of the parish development model is to increase household incomes and improve quality of life of Ugandans with specific focus on the total economic transformation of the households through getting Ugandans out of the subsistence economy into the money economy within 5 years.
The Parish Development Model is implemented along seven (7) pillars and include;
Agriculture value chain development (production, storage, processing and marketing)
Infrastructure and economic services
Community mobilization and mind-set change
Parish based management information systems
Governance and administration.
The parish is therefore the engine that will drive the above pillars to achieve socio-economic transformation of the households and Uganda as a country.
