UNDP Uganda Gender Equality Strategy (2014 - 2017)
The key concern for this UNDP Gender Strategy (2015-2020) is how the country office in Uganda can support government and sister UN agencies to unlock the barriers to achieving gender responsive sustainable development.
Such barriers mainly relate to institutional limitations in terms of policy and spending choices that results into effective gender equality programming and service delivery.
To achieve gender responsive sustainable development, the strategy recommends;
- Government and various development partners to re-think financing modalities for gender equality programming.
- Providing up to-date date to inform the localisation and implementation of the Sustainable Development Goal on Gender (Goal 5).
- Produce an annual State of Gender Equality in Uganda Report based on the SDG indicators and targets to inform government policy and programming.
- Ensure that government programmes have a positive effect on women’s wellbeing in areas of health, education as well as livelihoods.
