Uganda has made significant progress towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and  integrating SDGs into national planning and budgeting processes, starting with the Second National  Development Plan (NDP) II. The Government has now begun implementation of the Third National  Development Plan (NDP III) to achieve increased household income and quality of life. The primary objective  of this report was to examine the potential medium- to longer-term impact of the Third National Development Plan  (NDP III) on Uganda’s sustainable development. The impact is measured using targets set both within the
international framework of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and NDP III for Uganda. NDP III is the third  of six five-year national development plans, covering the period 2020/21-2024/25 in fulfilment of Vision 2040. The  Vision 2040 focuses on key sectors, resources and fundamentals to address strategic bottlenecks to encourage  sustainable socio-economic transformation in the country (National Planning Authority, 2013). The analysis  identified three SDG Accelerators – Environment, Governance and Industry – as the priority investment areas that  increase SDG performance. To be clear, these are not, in a general sense, SDGs that accelerate other SDGs, but  rather specific, actionable intervention areas that can accelerate SDG achievement. These accelerators would
improve the overall SDG attainment by 10.1% by the end of 2030, as compared with the case where NDP III were not  implemented. Additionally, interventions in Human Capital Development (which includes Health, Education and  Water and Sanitation), and Infrastructure and Agriculture categories of interventions, are important for the  achievement of specific SDGs.
