DPAD/UN-DESA has been implementing capacity development and policy advisory activities in Uganda since 2008. Financed by the Development Account, these activities aim at assessing the impact of existing socio-economic policies and at formulating and evaluating development strategies that will help Uganda faster achieve the development goals. The main areas of development policy which are covered by DPAD's capacity development initiatives in Uganda under past, current and forthcoming projects include: financing strategies to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), maximizing the development impact of international support measures in least developed countries (LDCs), and enhancing the coherence of macroeconomic and social policies.

Activities are implemented with the overall support from the Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development of Uganda. DPAD collaborates closely with the United Nations Development Program country office in Uganda for administrative support. The World Bank provides technical assistance during implementation of capacity development projects.
