What We Do
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) contributes to the Government of Uganda’s goals to reach middle income status by the year 2040. In the next five years (2016- 2020), the UNDP will be contributing principally to the achievement of good governance in Uganda. This is because achieving good governance creates enabling conditions for achieving high-quality human capital, which in turn drives attainment of sustainable, inclusive economic development. UNDP is leveraging its comparative advantages by focusing on governance and sustainable, inclusive economic development while complementing the efforts of other United Nations country team members on human capital development. This will be achieved through two key portfolio areas: The Inclusive, effective governance portfolio & The Sustainable, inclusive economic development portfolio.
Our goal is to eliminate extreme poverty, reduce inequalities and exclusion.
