Summary:
Trend growth in Uganda's economy has not been fast enough to create enough jobs with higher earnings for one of the world's fastest growing workforces. With almost three quarters of young people still joining the workforce on farms, Uganda's economic transformation into off farm waged jobs in urban areas must be hastened for faster economic growth. This report identifies ten key facts from a Jobs Diagnostic analysis which describe the main jobs challenges Uganda faces. It then sets out policy recommendations for a strategy for jobs and economic transformation which focuses on creating more waged jobs in Uganda, encouraging mobility into better jobs in urban areas, accelerating transformation of Uganda's agriculture, and fostering inclusion into better jobs.
