Delegation of the European Union to Uganda

Annual Action Plan 2016

10/02/2017 - 10:46

The EU has approved the Annual Action Plan 2016 for development cooperation with Uganda, and will provide €274.9 million for the period 2014-2020. The Action Plan focuses on transport infrastructures, food security and agriculture, as well as good governance.

The EU approved eight new projects which aim to create new job opportunities and long-term sustainable investment, and will also strengthen capacities and accountability of public institutions. They all have a strong focus on gender mainstreaming and climate change mitigation and adaptation.

This Action Plan builds on previous support in the three focal sectors of intervention of the European Union in Uganda (transport infrastructure, food security and agriculture and good governance). The projects provide integrated support to beneficiaries ranging from central to local governments, from civil society organisations to small-holder farmers and local private sector stakeholders.
