In line with its strategy ‘leaving no one behind in the digital era’, UNCDF, with the support of Sweden, aims by 2024 to empower at least one million Ugandans in rural communities to use services that leverage innovation and technology to contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The strategy, focused on “building inclusive digital economies”, aims to harness the power of digital tools in building sustainable livelihoods for underserved communities.

In the first year of implementing this strategy (2019), we asked the key stakeholders and ourselves how we could help address some of the most challenging market dysfunctions in the agriculture, digital, education and health sectors.

To get more insight into this, UNCDF carried out an inception study to understand selected market systems of the target sectors, to identify how to appropriately address underlying market constraints using digital interventions that lead to improved efficiency, effectiveness and sustainability.
