Review Report on Uganda’s Readiness for Implementation Of the 2030 Agenda
In September 2015, the United Nations Member States at the UN Summit under the presidency of Uganda adopted the 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development, and on 1st January 2016, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the Agenda officially came into play. The agenda is a plan of action for people, planet, prosperity, peace and partnerships to “Ensure that No One is Left Behind.”
These goals that universally apply to all will require countries over the next fifteen years to set targets for delivering on social, economic and environmental tenets for sustainable development. Uganda has fully embraced the principles for sustainable development as stipulated in the 2030 Agenda and is one of the first countries globally to integrate the Agenda in its national planning frameworks particularly in the Second National Development Plan (NDPII).
This report demonstrates Uganda’s readiness to implement this agenda and how it is positioning its self to coordinate, mobilise efforts and resources, manage data and monitor progress for the successful implementation and realisation of the results of the Agenda.
