UN board assesses body’s work in Uganda

Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | On May 05, the Executive Board of the United Nations (UN) met President Museveni at State House in Entebbe to assess how the International Body’s work is impacting the country in terms of achieving its development related targets.

Museveni told the delegation that Uganda’s and Africa’s transformation journey has encountered a lot of bottlenecks such as ideological disorientation, fragmentation of markets that do not attract big investments and hostility to the private sector by past regimes, among others and therefore called upon UN agencies to focus on funding crucial areas such as electricity generation that will result in industrialization and getting people out of wetlands, among others.

The United Nations Resident Coordinator and UNDP Representative in Uganda, Ms. Rosa Malango, led the 35 member-strong Delegation of the Executive Boards of the United Nations Development Programme, United Nations Population Fund, United Nations Office for Project Services, United Nations’ Children’s Fund, World Food Programme and UN-Women.
