Our Goal

Structural Transformation leads to long-Term Sustainable and Inclusive Socio-Economic Development in Northern Uganda

NURDEF FOR INCLUSIVE SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

We are Northern Uganda Regional Development Forum-NURDEF -a culmination of districts, cities and Municipalities in Lango, Acholi and WestNile, aiming to spur Social and Economic development in Northern Uganda to address the challenge of regional imbalance. We seek to work with all districts and Cities, sub-regional entities, MDAs,  CSOs, cultural and Religious Institutions, youth women and PWDs to enhance focus on critical issues of development. We value engagement and inclusiveness of all stakeholders and partners of development to collectively diagnose development challenges,  harmonise approaches and together celebrate impacts and achievements

NURDEF Scope and Purpose

NURDEF covers West Nile, Acholi and Lango sub regions whose leadership have agreed on a common strategy with the aim of galvanizing and creating ownership of development processes in northern Uganda. NURDEF defines key strategic development drivers in the next five (5) years.  It also creates a structure within which districts and regions will collaborate to ensure coordination and success of implementation of development programs. It provides space for the private sector participation in Agri – Led opportunities in partnership with government and the communities during implementation of the strategic plan.
