The International Potato Centre (IPC) has launched

a multi-million project to leverage the untapped

potential of sweet potato to significantly

improve the nutrition, incomes and

food production of farming

families in Sub-Sahara Africa.

The project is mainly funded by

the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation

which has injected $21m (about Shs40b)

to support the five-year Sweet Potato Action

for Security and Health in Africa

in eight countries with Uganda

taking nine per cent (about Shs3.4b)

The project will be launched on Monday.
