In Uganda, farmers face increasing exposure to risks associated with changing weather patterns, suffering from severe drought and the effects of climate change. As a result, farmers’ crops are often destroyed in these poor conditions with no insurance to help recover the cost, sending many African farmers into a vicious cycle of poverty while also creating a devastating food shortage.
