Project context, objectives and description

Urbanization offers considerable opportunities for accelerating socio-economic transformation through economic growth, employment and wealth creation. Well-planned and managed urbanization is a force for sustainable development as recognized in the global Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development, as well as the African Union’s Agenda 2063. As such, the project’s objective is to attain inclusive, productive and liveable urban areas for socio-economic development in Uganda, through demand-driven technical advisory, knowledge development and private sector solutions offered on the ground for pro-poor and environmentally sustainable green growth interventions. 

The project aligns with IO1 Strengthened green growth policies; IO2 Increased green investment flows; and IO3 Improved knowledge sharing and capacity building.
