USAID/Uganda’s Country Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS) 2016 – 2021 aims to work towards ensuring that “Uganda’s systems are accelerating inclusive education, health and economic outcomes.” Six integrated projects are planned, to contribute to the achievement of this goal. They are: i)Resilience Project, ii) Demographic Drivers Project, iii) Market Systems Project, iv) Natural ResourcesManagement Systems Project, v) Health Systems Project, and vi) Governance and Citizen Participation Systems Project. The respective projects are elaborated in interrelated Project Appraisal Documents (PADs). For these projects to be effectively implemented, USAID/Uganda recognizes that it is important to integrate gender equality and inclusion of vulnerable groups. USAID therefore commissioned this gender and social inclusion analysis, to identify key gender and inclusive development issues and constraints that need to be addressed within its portfolio and to recommend how USAID/Uganda can achieve greater inclusive development in its programs.
