Country Programme for Uganda 2018-2022

In the period 2018-2022, Denmark will invest DKK 945 million (EUR 127 million) in Uganda


Denmark will in particular focus on two thematic programmes: Uganda Programme for Sustainable and Inclusive Development of the Economy - UPSIDE - and Uganda Programme for Governance, Rights, Accountability and Democracy - UPGRADE.

The focus is on social, economic and political inclusion for all Ugandans, but in particular women and youth, as well as refugees and the communities hosting them.

The two thematic programmes benefit from the Embassy’s strategic partnerships with Danish NGOs operating in Uganda, twinning arrangements between Danish authorities and Ugandan state institutions, as well as Danish engagement in relevant political fora.
