Uganda’s thrust for sustainable development has been demonstrated by its Vision 2040, which is fully aligned to all the three (social, economic, and environmental) dimensions of sustainable development. Launched in 2013, the Vision aims at transforming Uganda from a predominantly rural and low-income country to a competitive upper middle-income country within 30 years. It is actualized through the Comprehensive National Development Planning Framework (CNDPF) articulated through three ten-year and six five-year National Development Plans.
Uganda is currently implementing the third National Development Plan (NDP III) 2020/21-2024/25 of twenty programmes together with their Programme Implementation Action Plans (PIAPs). One of the major shifts in the NDPIII is the change from a disjointed sector approach to a more coherent programme approach to implementation, which is seen as an opportunity to improve collaboration among actors, reduce duplication of efforts and exploit synergies based on competitive advantage of the respective contributing stakeholders.
The NDP 3 emphasizes the need to promote the implementation of the National Partnership Policy as one of its reforms for effective implementation. OPM is tasked to promote the partnership policy among the several players to align their activities for the effective implementation of the Plan. The programme approach also necessitated the reorganization and restructuring of the way partners relate with government.
A Development Finance Assessment (DFA) for Uganda by the Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development (MFPED) with support from UNDP in 2019 shows that an increasingly complex and diversified development finance landscape is emerging, with implications on the government’s approach towards development finance mobilisation and management. Not only have new donors emerged, but also new forms of private finance are increasingly present. Joint accountability mechanisms have also been negatively affected by the significant reduction in budget support arrangements in 2012, with more development financing being directly channelled to beneficiaries through private sector and civil society. At the same time, the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine crisis have created multiple macro and micro-level risks and vulnerabilities domestically and externally, posing fiscal and external financing gaps that have implications for debt sustainability and the entire financing landscape.
Against this background, and for Government of Uganda to make a steadfast step towards its commitments articulated in the Vision 2040 and NDP III, Government and its partners are devising new approaches to improve the development cooperation architecture and ensure effective partnership between Government and other development actors. One of these channels is through the revitalization of the National Partnership Forum (NPF) and the preparation of a Joint results and Accountability Framework that will guide partnership dialogue.
The objective of the consultancy is to support Government and its partners to agree on and prepare a Joint results and Accountability Framework (JAF) that meets the criteria prescribed by the Global Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation to guide national partnership dialogue.
