Florence Lubwama Kiyimba’s current research focuses on the gender aspects of a technology that was designed by NARL-NARO to help Ugandan women reduce the time it takes to chop elephant grass for their penned dairy cattle. “Working as a team, we carry out needs assessment surveys to identify constraints in agricultural production and then design and develop simple, appropriate, and gender-sensitive technologies to reduce the energy and time intensity on women and children, while minimizing losses in processing and adding value to the products,” explains Lubwama Kiyimba.
