Hi Odwarat Jacob Isaac  welcome to the Food System Vision Prize Community!
It is lovely to see you build a Vision for Uganda that supports farmers and guides them to handle harvested food efficiently for reduced wastage.
Since your Vision will be designed specifically for the Place and People of Uganda, it will be very valuable to understand the needs, aspirations, motivations, and challenges of your Place and its People. You can find some inspiration and tools to help you with your research in the Vision Prize Toolkit in Chapter 3 under Tools of Transformation. Here is the link to the Prize Toolkit: http://bit.ly/2X4ZxQk

Look forward to seeing your Vision evolve through the coming weeks.
