Since 1997 Sida (Swedish International Development Co-operation Agency) has financed a programme to promote exports of organic products from Africa. The latest evaluation made in 2004 showed a high impact and significant improvements in the livelihood of some 27,000 farmers from Uganda and Tanzania. In the end of March Sida decided to prolong the EPOPA programme up to 2008. The total volume of the EPOPA prolongation is 7 Million Euros.
