The Uganda National Planning Authority undertook a similar approach by integrating and mainstreaming the SDGs into National Development Plan (NDP) 3. Adopting a "Program Approach to Planning, Budgeting and Implementation," relevant SDGs have been integrated into each of the 18 National Programs of NDP3. For instance, agro-industrialization (one of the 18 National Programs), has integrated interventions aimed at achieving SDG Goals l, 2 and 9 (end extreme poverty and hunger by reducing subsistence farming and promoting commercial agriculture, achieve food security, improve nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture) as well as SDG 8 (promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all). The climate change, Water, Environment and Natural Resource Management Program has integrated SDG Goals 12, 13, 14 and 15 which set targets for combating the effects of climate change and sustainable management of water resources, land, terrestrial ecosystems, forests and the environment. The same approach has been taken for all the other SDGs.
The National Planning Authority worked closely with the UN system in Uganda during the integration process. The UN system provided support for conducting the policy and institutional gap analysis for implementation of SDGs. In addition, UN Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) and UNDP provided technical expertise during modelling to determine the programs where government would invest to achieve the biggest impact on its targeted development results. The Uganda customised iSDG Model identified Industry, Governance, and Environment as the accelerators for the attainment of SDGs and the NDP 3 targets. All of this work was taken on board in the drafting of NDP3.
Government will work closely together with the UN system during the implementation of NDP3 in the preparation and implementation of the Integrated National Financing Framework (INFF) and in mobilizing the domestic private sector in Uganda for implementation of the SDGs. In addition, the UN system will provide support to Uganda Bureau of Statistics (UBOS) to integrate the relevant SDGs targets into NDP3 National Standard Indicator Framework (NSI) to facilitate reporting on SDGs achievement. This side event will be an opportunity for Uganda, other countries and UN agencies to share lessons, insights and best practices in integrating the SDGs into the National Development Framework. It will also offer an opportunity to explore the most effective ways in which host countries can partner with the UN family to accelerate the achievement of the SDGs. The side event will be addressed by development experts from Uganda and other African countries.
b. The side event likewise will generate ideas for implementation of SDGs accelerated actions in the decade 2020-2030 under the current COVID-19 pandemic to build back better.
