Accelerating Uganda's development : ending child marriage, educating girls (Inglês)

Following decades of sustained economic growth during which Uganda made dramatic progress towards poverty reduction, the country has recently experienced a period of economic growth slow down. Uganda’s youthful population has the potential to achieve increased productivity and to build its resilience to shocks. Efforts to increase productivity and to reduce vulnerability must be implemented with the intention of realizing the full potential of Uganda’s large number of youths. In particular, this will require the provision of universal education, irrespective of gender. Following an assessment of the current state of Uganda’s economy and its outlook for the future, this tenth Uganda economic update focuses on issues related to how ending child marriage, preventing early childbearing, and improving girls’ levels of educational attainment are essential for the achievement of faster growth and inclusive development.
