Uganda is in the midst of a demographic tsunami—with its population doubling every 16 years. This exacerbates an already high rate of youth unemployment and amplifies pressures on social, natural, and other resources.

USAID began its assistance to Uganda immediately after its independence in 1962, recognizing the country’s potential as a “bread basket” of Africa, with its rich natural resources, and significant rural population. Priorities have evolved over the past five decades, and we remain committed to improving Ugandans’ livelihoods. 

With three integrated development objectives—increasing resilience, addressing demographic drivers, and strengthening systems, USAID works in partnership with the people of Uganda to address the fundamental challenges constraining the country’s development.
