LOCALIZATION OF SDGs IN UGANDA

Uganda ranks very low in the implementation of the sustainable development goals just as indicated in SDG report1 for Uganda that shows Uganda achieved only 33% of the SDG targets and the 2030 Agenda provides an opportunity for Uganda to complete the unfinished business of the SDGs. This happens while Uganda itself believes that itís a highly burdened country in most of the goals such as Peace, clean renewable energy, life under water, and gender issues. Uganda is lagging behind in several important non-monetary areas of fighting poverty, notably improved sanitation, access to electricity, education (completion and progression), and child malnutrition thus leaving the poverty levels at 19.7% about 7.4 million people according to the Uganda Poverty Assessment fact sheet 2016.
