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.

Government should harmonise the Cooperative Laws in Uganda so that there is harmony in cooperative administration and Governance ~ Mrs. Jane Amuge Okello of The Uhuru Institute
#CoopsNDPF

Cooperatives should be allowed to develop organically from bottom up because that is when they will succeed instead of being formed in a top down arrangement ~Hon. @NandalaMafabi @mtic_uganda
#CoopsNDPF

To show Government commitment, all policies should leverage cooperatives for example through local content programmes and industralisation among others ~ Dr. Asumani Guloba
#NDPF

A well developed tertiary level of Cooperatives is critical for the provision of dedicated services including insurance, finance, marketing and transport. @NPA_UG @SemweyaMusoke @JosephMuvawala @mtic_uganda @HonDavidBahati

Provision of selected cooperative public goods including; education, auditing, affordable finance, extension and targeted subsidies through an efficient delivery mechanism is key for the success of cooperatives
#COOPSNDPF

For sustainability and survival in a liberalized market, cooperatives should be market driven. They must compete in a market by offering better incentives, products and services than middlemen.
#COOPSNDPF

Cooperatives have the potential of increasing production, productivity and value addition and hence critical for Uganda's transformation towards an inclusive middle-income country @mtic_uganda @
#COOPSNDPF

Cooperatives are an integral part of government's economic strategy in poverty alleviation, employment creation, food security and equitable distribution of resources. Cooperatives are not dead. They need support from all of us.
#CoopsNDPF @NPA_UG @HonDavidBahati @JosephMuvawala

What has been missing in the cooperatives' debate is a feasible framework through which cooperatives should succeed
