Report on the Status of Sustainable Goals Data and Statistics in Uganda

March 3, 2023

Uganda aspires to achieve development goals laid out in the Uganda Vison 2040 and its attendant development plans. The country also has an obligation to achieve the 2030 Agenda and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals and contribute to other global agendas such as the Africa Agenda 2063 and the East African Community Vision 2050.

These aspirations and obligations have significantly increased the demand for timely, high quality and disaggregated data to enable effective planning, budgeting, monitoring and reporting on development results.

As part of efforts to generate evidence regarding the landscape of current data and statistics, the United Nations Resident Coordinator in Uganda collaborated with the Government of Uganda to review the status of SDG-related data and statistics to inform stakeholder decision-making. The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) provided technical leadership to this process.

This report presents the status of SDG data and statistics in terms of data availability and existing and potential data sources; data and statistics use; capacity requirements for the National Statistical System; and the coordination, mainstreaming and financing of SDG-related data and statistics.
