Abstract : Two years ago, in 1998, the Co-operation department of the French embassy in Uganda, together with CIRAD-EMVT (International Center of Agronomic Research for Development, Montpellier - France) launched a research project on milk production in Mbarara district (Western Uganda). During these two years, a fundamental work has been done with the farmers, the District Veterinary Offices, in partnership with MUST (Mbarara University of Science. and Technology) in order to prepare the second phase of the programme, operational in terms of development, since the overall objective of the project is to enhance the contribution of milk production (both in quantity and quality) in the eradication or rural poverty. This document presents the proceedings of a seminar, organised by the French Embassy in Uganda. This seminar aimed at presenting the first results of the research phase, gathering stakeholders of the milk subsector and especially farmers, institutions, research organisations to discuss of the main problems they are facing and to prepare the next phase of the project dedicated to development. The results of the first phase concern four aspects: 1 - Zootechnical results on milk production and price, growth rate of young calves. 2 - Fodder crops and other complementary feeds results are presented. 3 - Economical results at farm level are presented. 4 - Epidemiological results especially concerning Brucellosis and Tuberculosis are presented. Following these results, discussion groups on milk quality, sanitary constraints, farmers associations, milk marketing and institutional arrangements are summarized. The presentations of NAADS project from the world bank and of the next phase of the milk project are also detailed. Also, a presentation of Dairy Development Authority is reported. (Résumé d'auteur)
