Africa 2000 Network -Uganda is a local Non-Governmental organization that was conceived in 1986 at the United Nations (UN) General Assembly Special Session on the Critical economic Situation in Africa. Later in 1990, the idea developed into a United Nations Development Program that was implemented in 13 African Countries supporting community based projects aimed at environmental protection and promotion of ecologically sustainable development for improved livelihoods.
In Uganda project activities commenced in 1990 with focus on grassroots initiatives in the rea of sustainable agriculture. The programme used UNV/DDS volunteers to provide technical support to farmers. In 1997, with support from the European Union, A2N secured support for community projects in the districts of Iganga, Tororo, Kitgum, Kamuli, Homa and Wakiso.
