The Insurance Regulatory Authority of Uganda (IRA) together with the Agriculture Insurance Consortium (AIC) participated in the third Harvest Money Agriculture Exhibition. The three-day exhibition which attracted over 250,000 participants was organized by the Vision Group and held at Namboole Stadium from 15th -17th February 2019.

The exhibition brings together farmers, suppliers, service providers involved in the agriculture value chain, Government, Private sector players and members of the general public to share their successful experiences as well as challenges and learn from each other.

The IRA and AIC used the platform to sensitize farmers on the availability of Agriculture insurance and how it can support farmers in risk management, hence making agriculture a more sustainable business. The team also used the opportunity to educate the exhibitors and other participants about the existence of the Agriculture insurance premium subsidy by Government and details pertaining to its operations.
