Analysis of Uganda’s Draft National Industrial Development Policy: Mainstreaming Agro-Processing, Trade, Climate Change and Food Security

This briefing paper presents a summary of the key findings of a research study that was undertaken to provide input into the development of Uganda’s second National Industrial Development Policy (NIDP). The research adopted a comprehensive approach to assessing the outgoing National Industrial Policy (NIP), which will expire at the end of 2018 after a 10 years implementation phase. The research identifies policy gaps and proposes key areas for policy reform with specific focus on making the second NIDP cognisant of climate change, food security, trade, and gender in agro-processing.
