UNDP Uganda 2020 Annual Report
Jul 27, 2021
UNDP Uganda's 2020 Annual Report, titled "Standing with Uganda to Build Forward Better Together in the Face of COVID-19" presents UNDP’s programmatic interventions throughout 2020 with a focus on partnerships, touching on key milestones in the response to and recovery from COVID-19, institutional strengthening, peace and security, sustainable energy solutions, protecting Uganda’s biodiversity, protecting livelihoods of vulnerable groups, eliminating violence against women and girls, and UNDP’s complex role as a thought leader and integrator within the broader United Nations Country Team (UNCT) in Uganda.
While 2020 was the final year of implementation of UNDP’s Country Programme Document 2016- 2020, it foresaw the transition to a new country programme for the period 2021-2025 premised on partnership and cooperation. UNDP played its integrator role in the UN system by offering a platform for stakeholder consultations during the development of the Government of Uganda’s Third National Development Plan (NDP III). UNDP also ensured the United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (UNSDCF) 2021-2025 is aligned to Uganda’s development agenda and positions the UNDP Country Office and broader United Nations Country Team (UNCT) to deliver as one on Uganda’s Vision 2040 and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
