The study was conducted under the leadership of the National Planning Authority (NPA) with financial and technical support from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). The report assesses readiness to implement the Sustainable
Development Goals (SDGs) across two areas: First, Uganda’s policy environment, through the examination of a selection of 20 policy frameworks including national development plans, policies, and sector plans; and second, Uganda’s institutional environment, by gathering primary and secondary data on the preparedness in a selection of 12 government bodies. Overall, the Government of Uganda (GoU) presents a mixed picture of readiness to implement the 2030 Agenda in both its policy and institutional environment. Common themes in the gaps identified were missing baseline indicators or data for the indicators set; lack of specific budget allocations; commitments evaluated through results frameworks; and conflicting tradeoffs.
