Strategic Policy Advice

The Strategy and Policy Advice Unit (SPU) gives advice on implications of Government’s socioeconomic policies. It provides information of the challenges Uganda faces in eradicating poverty and attaining the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). It identifies strategies that contribute to inclusive growth and sustainable human development. It supports Government and the UN national team’s efforts to improve aid coordination and effectiveness. The Policy Unit collaborates with Government, the academia, research committees, civil society and other development partners in its work.

We support capacity development initiatives of government, local government, civil society organizations, academia and other institutions and other stakeholders through advocacy, policy advisory and implementation services.more
