UNCDF 2024 goal is to empower millions of people to use services leveraging innovation and technology that contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
UNCDF has been present in Uganda since 1982, supporting the Government to create a functional planning and financial system for sustainable and inclusive local development. Today, together with the larger UN Country Team, UNCDF in Uganda supports the Government to effectively implement the Second National Development Plan and realize its vision of becoming a middle-income country by 2020 and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.
