Mission and objectives

The UN General Assembly Resolution 72/279 on the repositioning of the UN Development System, positions the United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (UNSDCF) as the
single most important UN country programming instrument in support of the 2030 Agenda. The UN system in Uganda is in its fourth year of implementing its first UN Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (UNSDCF) as described in UN General Assembly Resolution 72/279. The five-year framework from 2021 - 25 is aligned to the Third National Development Plan (NDP III) and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The UN RCO in Uganda coordinates the efforts of various UN agencies and their initiatives in Uganda to ensure a cohesive and impactful approach towards achieving sustainable development goals. Serving as the cornerstone of the UN system's coordination mechanism, the UNRCO facilitates the harmonization of programmes and resources among 22 resident and 7 non-resident UN entities operating in Uganda.
