WORD FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

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.

Happening Now:

Validation workshop for the Uganda Cotton, Textiles and Apparel Industry(CTA) strategy.

The National Planning Authority (NPA) is currently developing a strategy for the Cotton, Textiles and Apparel (CTA) industry.

The strategy will harness the potential of the CTA industry to accelerate economic growth, create employment and earn foreign exchange for the country. The Uganda government has prioritized the CTA industry as fundamental to the process of industrialization and the subsequent realization of the medium and long-term national development targets.

The process to develop the strategy involved extensive consultations with local industry stakeholders and a learning visit to India and Sri Lanka to gain relevant international experiences in the industry.

NPA is being supported by Msingi East Africa to develop the strategy.
