Over the last 40 years, UNDP Uganda has implemented development programmes in support of Government development efforts focusing on the elimination of poverty, reduction of inequalities and exclusion, promoting effective governance, national resource management and access to energy, addressing environmental degradation, climate change and disaster risk reduction through linking local insight and global perspectives.
In 2020, UNDP unveiled a new five-year Country Programme Document (CPD) for Uganda 2021-2025 anchored in inclusive and sustainable solutions to Uganda’s development challenges. The CPD is aligned to Uganda’s third National Development Plan (NDP III) 2021-2025 and the Uganda long-term vision 2040. This alignment enables UNDP to contribute to national development efforts and to support the Government of Uganda to achieve the 2030 Agenda and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
UNDP is the leading United Nations organization working with the Government of Uganda to achieve sustainable development, and the partner of choice for development knowledge sharing, building and strengthening national capacities. Working alongside government, development partners, the private sector, civil society, traditional leaders and academic institutions, UNDP’s commitment to Uganda continues to be to empower lives and build a resilient nation.
The Country Programme Document (CPD) for Uganda 2021-2025 outlines UNDP’s programme priorities through the coming five-year period. Successful implementation of the CPD depends in part on these priorities being communicated and reinforced with key audiences. These priorities include:
UNDP promotes structural transformation in view of the opportunities presented by the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA), advancing competitiveness in the manufacturing sector while building robust and integrated value chains in the agriculture, tourism and mining sectors with a focus on integrating local economic actors, micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs), youth, women and other vulnerable groups.
UNDP is working to strengthen sustainable land management and restoration of degraded forest and wetland ecosystems. Integral to these efforts will be the continued restoration of ecosystems in refugee settlements and host communities, institutional capacity development in natural resource governance, and deeper citizen participation in environmental management and community resilience.
UNDP supports the building and strengthening of governance infrastructure in the public and private sectors, institutionalizing e-governance systems in the public sector at national and sub-national levels while facilitating integration and effective delivery of services within the private sector
