WORD FROM THE CHAIRPERSON

In pursuance of our primary function, to produce comprehensive and integrated development plans for the country, the National Planning Authority has continued to guide the country’s progress towards socio-economic transformation through three major landmarks of the Uganda Vision 2040, 1st National Development Plan (NDPI) and 2nd National Development Plan (NDPII).

In addition the Authority, as the Secretariat of the Presidential Economic Council, has produced various policy papers to guide Cabinet decision making. Also through the National Development Policy Forums, the Authority has facilitated public debate and input on key national policy issues. This is aimed at enhancing national ownership for all development planning frameworks, plans and policies.

In order to harmonise development planning in the country, NPA has developed and disseminated sector and local government development planning guidelines, besides creating and strengthening partnerships, networks and collaborations in development planning. All the publications and plans are available on this website.

Currently the Authority is working with all the stakeholders through various processes to ensure that NDPII is fully implemented to realize the country’s goal of attaining middle income status by 2020.

We thank you for visiting our website and hope it was useful. You can utilize the available dialogue and feedback platforms on this website to reach us.

While 42% of the second National Development Plan is expected to come from Private sector, Uganda is yet to undertake first PPP project under the NDPII. The overall misalignment of the NBFP and NDP is also underscored in the Budget committee report.

The Second National Development Plan (NDP I 2015/16-2019/20) provides a road map for Uganda to attain a lower middle income status by 2020. The Plan identifies development strategies to achieve this lower middle income status by 2020.

The main objective of this brief is to give highlights of the action plan for Export development which identified the key constraints of key stake Holders and practitioners, actual field visits and literature survey which revealed that Uganda's export challenge is more linked to the supply side.

@NPA_UG Not many professionals and leaders (in/out of Ug) seem to have grasped the enormity of the transformation that underlies UV2040 and the work that is needed. How do we engage?
