Inclusive and Effective Governance

The UNDP inclusive, effective governance programme encompasses all tenets of good governance. Evidence from world over has shown that constitutional democracy fosters national development by creating political stability and an environment conducive to investment. This is through having efficient and effective national resource allocation systems that facilitate the equitable distribution of growth dividends and strong public institutions to combat corruption and improve service delivery. In addition, strong security and justice systems enhance social cohesion, peace and stability thus guaranteeing sustainable development. This programme will therefore work with government and various partners to develop national capacities in the rule of law; constitutional democracy; transparency and accountability; peace, security and system resilience.

Our Goals

Our goal in this programme will be to strengthen national capacities in building structures that support good governance enabling the country to meet the its Vision 2040 and National Development Plan (NDP) II, which emphasize that good governance it the key foundation for reaching a middle income status.

Capacity Building for Strengthening Diaspora Resource Mobilisation and Utilisation

That diaspora remittances topped $879.4m in the financial year 2011/2012, higher than coffee at $466.6m, shows just how much a huge contribution they make to Uganda’s economy. Despite this, the government has not put in place any mechanism to capture these contributions and provide support for Ugandans in the diaspora to encourage them to invest back home. more
