The United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) inclusive digital economy strategy in Uganda
Since 2013, UNCDF has been implementing a market development approach on digital finance in Uganda. With the support of the Sweden Development Agency (SIDA), UNCDF will execute the “Leaving no one behind in the digital era” strategy in country until 2024 under the “Connect” Rural Uganda Programme. The Programme has the aim to develop an inclusive digital economy in Uganda with a specific focus at empowering rural communities, smallholders farmers, agri-business and refugees - to lead productive and healthy lives, by expanding access and usage of digital services.
The main expected outcomes of this new initiative include:
- Rural community members in Uganda (smallholders farmers, agri-business & refugees) have the knowledge, skills and behaviours needed to access and use digital services. They have better access to training and education through digital channels.
- New business models and technologies for delivering services are scaled for rural communities in the education, health, finance, agriculture and energy sector.
- Rural community members have improved access to and increasingly use digital payment accounts.
- The Government of Uganda implements policies that enable access and usage of digital services.
In order to implement the program, UNCDF is looking for a Knowledge Management consultant.
