mostly in the south.
Uganda is land locked country there is one source of water. It branches off through rivers across the country.
Lake Victoria branches out in to rivers across the country. It is still hard to get water even with the rivers and lakes. This is because they water is not that clean to drink. they do use water as there main source of power they use hydro power for a lot of there needs.
Since it is hard for them to grow crops they have to import most of there goods.
They only have 8.92% permanent crops.
They spend $5.093 billion on imports only $ 57 million is used for food.
Some of the poorest parts have to receive food aid because they don't have the means to be able to pay for food.
They use little of the money used for imports for food.
The only other way the some of the people are able to receive food is by other countries food aids.
