dc.description.abstractThe Vision 2040 pronounced “harnessing the demographic dividend (DD)” as one of the strategies for benefiting from the country’s abundant and young population. The DD is an opportunity for economic growth and development that arises as a result of changes in population age structure. When fertility rates decline significantly, the share of the working-age population increases in relation to the dependant age groups. A larger working-age population if gainfully employed can enable a country to increase GDP and raise incomes, but must be nurtured. With the right polices and investments in health, education and economy the increasing young population is, therefore, considered as one of the potential drivers to socioeconomic development and transformation of Uganda. The Vision Strategy of “Harnessing the Demographic Dividend is concretized through: Human Capital Development Pillar interventions in the National Development Plan (NDPII). Although broad DD intervention have been specified and incorporated into NDP II both at objective and strategy levels under the human capital development pillar, translating them into Sector-level interventions and Local Government activities is still a challenge. This brief highlights the decisions needed to guide the mainstreaming of the demographic dividend drivers into sectoral and local government development plans including non-state actors.en_US
