# Job Description

Uganda endorsed the UN Reform in November 2018, putting the United Nations
Sustainable Cooperation Framework UNSDCF as the single most important UN
country-planning instrument in support of the 2030 Agenda at the national
level. With the Sustainable Development Goals SDGs at its core, the UNSDCF
2021-2025 is aligned to the third National Development Plan NDPIII and
Uganda Vision 2040 and will be implemented by 29 UN entities through three
Strategic Priorities: 1 Transformative and Inclusive Governance; 2 Shared
Prosperity in a Healthy Environment; and 3 Human Well-being and Resilience.

In order to ensure coherence in promoting UNSDCF programming principles, the
UN has formulated Joint Work Plans JWPs, which stipulate key actions to be
undertaken by the contributing agencies across the three strategic priorities.
As part of the efforts to further reduce potential duplications and exploit
synergies among agencies, the UN is in the process of identifying crosscutting
areas that are candidates for development of joint programmes as a means of
implementation and resource mobilization.

The commitment to “Leave No One Behind” requires continuous monitoring of
progress towards the achievement of the SDGs, placing high data demands on
countries. This requires strategies to strengthen national, regional, and
global capacities to support data systems and calls for innovative approaches
to build capacity in the production, management and use of data for decision-
making. In light of this, the UN system in Uganda is desirous of carrying out
a review of the status of SDG related data and statistics in Uganda with the
aim of identifying intervention areas for development of a joint programme on
data and statistics.
