Uganda continues to make progress on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. In 2016, Government of Uganda developed a framework to guide the coordination of the implementation of the 2030 Agenda under the leadership of the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM). The National Coordination Framework for SDGs was subsequently approved by Cabinet and Parliament in 2016 and is anchored within the existing coordination structures of implementing government business and provides strategic guidance on the roles and responsibilities of key institutions, steered by a multi-stakeholder SDG National Taskforce. To operationalize the coordination framework, the Office of the Prime Minister in liaison with other government ministries, departments and agencies developed an enabling costed roadmap to create an enabling environment for delivering on the SDGs but also act as a resource mobilization tool for the Agenda during the Second National Development Plan (NDPII) implementation period.

Complementary national indicators are under consideration by the Government, reflecting the holistic, integrated and indivisible nature of the Agenda 2030. The integration into the sectors and to the local level is ongoing and being spearheaded by NPA.
The Coordination Framework provides for five layers established within the Government coordination structures, namely: The Policy Coordination Committee (PCC)which is the highest structure chaired by the Prime Minister, the Implementation Steering Committee (ISC) which has a responsibility to review progress and recommend policy proposals to the PCC, the National SDG Taskforce, comprising of technical officers from lead agencies of the Technical Working Groups (TWGs), technical representatives from key implementing MDAs, Development Partners (DPs), civil society and private sector. The committee is chaired by the Permanent Secretary in OPM.
The Government with support from UN developed a National SDG Roadmap (launched October 2018), which outlines key actions and sets timelines for the mainstreaming, implementation and reporting of the Agenda 2030 and its Sustainable Development Goals in Uganda. The SDG Roadmap covers among other elements awareness-raising; multi-stakeholder consultations and dialogue; tailoring the SDGs to the local context; creating horizontal and vertical policy coherence; budgeting for the future; and monitoring, reporting and accountability.
The principal objective of the assignment is to support the National SDG Secretariat in its functions, including operationalization the National SDG Coordination Framework; promoting the mainstreaming and implementation of the Agenda 2030 in Uganda; and ensuring that all the gender aspects in reporting is included. This assignment has a strong focus on the implementation of the SDG Roadmap process, stakeholder engagement and reporting.
