Government and Civil Society to discuss strategies to achieve SDG targets in Uganda
The recently endorsed Sustainable Development Goals underscore the importance of ‘water’ as a critical aspect of the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda.
Uganda Vision 2040 and the National Development Plan II, consider water resources as an important ingredient for human resource development.
The Dialogue will be held at Hotel African on 20th to 21st January 2016, with the first day focusing on policy level discussions that are expected to result in recommendations for moving the SDG agenda forward. The second day will focus on technical discussions that are expected to result in an action plan for implementing the policy level recommendations.
Water resources are an integral part of the ecosystem and water is a natural resource as well as a socio-economic good. It is a scarce and highly vulnerable resource and is an essential element for sustaining human life and the lives of all organisms. For Uganda, water is a strategic resource and a significant tool in the country’s wealth creation efforts and is a key driver of production and economic growth.
