The UN Resident Coordinator Office
The Resident Coordinator’s Office supports the work of the UN Resident Coordinator and coordinates activities of the UN Country Team in its engagement with the Government as defined by the UN Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (UNSDCF).
Uganda will soon commence implementing UNSDCF 2021 – 2025, which is the medium-term results framework that describes the response of the UN system to national development priorities. UNSDCF describes how the UN Country Team will contribute to the achievement of development results based on a common country analysis and the UN comparative advantage.
The Resident Coordinator is leading and strategically positioning the United Nations Country Team in Uganda to respond to the current national priorities, mainly to Uganda’s Vision 2040, and the third National Development Plan (NDPIII). The Office has five core functions:
- Strategic Planning
- Economic Analysis
