Vertical farming to nourish Uganda

At EcoLife Foods we make agriculture exciting for youth, lower the risk to do it year round regardless of location, with little soils. We farm in the city..........We are smart.

“Vertical farming at EcoLife Foods is an inclusive technology that promotes growing high value vegetables for both health and wealth. The vertical farms increase productivity per unit area by stacking plants on rails above each other. The rails are made from locally available material. The incorporation of quality soil management techniques, reuse of waste materials such as - polybags, and sub marginal production areas—is encouraged in sustainable systems and lowers cost of production in vertical farming.”  

We grow more variety of leafy green produce on less land, using less water, less soils therefore preventing deforestation, conserving water, reducing greenhouse emissions.

Dutch Development Results - Website!

With this website, the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs presents the results that the Netherlands, together with national and international partners, has achieved in the field of development co-operation in 2016.

Have a look at this very informative website, with information on country level, countries and themes: http://www.dutchdevelopmentresults.nl/  

Inclusive sustainable development

Making trade and investment flows sustainable is no easy feat in an unpredictable global economy. Climate change is not only leading to long-term drought but also to major flooding. And for truly equitable development to exist, attention must be paid to the disadvantaged position of women and girls. The Netherlands conti
