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.

The #SukuluProject that was launched by H. E. Yoweri Kaguta Museveni yesterday is one of the Core Projects that was planned for in the NDPII.
It comes with enormous benefits among which include: increasing the volume of cement, steel, glass and phosphates in Uganda; provision of jobs; and decreasing of the import bill. Ultimately, the transformation of phosphates into fertilizers will boost agricultural productivity.
