Democratic Governance

The vision of Uganda’s current NDP (2010/11-2014/15) is to transform Uganda to a middle-income economy through promoting growth, employment and socioeconomic transformation for prosperity. UNDP's programme in Uganda aims to support the Government to put in place policies and institutions that are participatory and inclusive of both women and men, improve rule of law, and deliver high-quality services.

Our Goals

We aim to strengthen national capacities in civic engagement, electoral processes, access to justice and rule of law, accountability, service delivery, HIV/Aids, gender and post conflict management. more
