The Social Development Sector Strategic Investment Plan (SDIP 2) 2011/12 – 2015/16

The Social Development Sector (SDS) was established in 2001 as part of the overall Government of Uganda Sector Wide Approach (SWAP) to planning and programming. The activities of the sector were guided by the Sector Development Sector Investment Plan (SDIP 1) which was implemented from July 2003 – June 2008. SDIP 1 articulated interventions and strategies to protect and empower the poor and the vulnerable. In particular, the plan focused on revitalization of the Community Development function particularly at the Sub county level, expanding functional adult literacy, supporting to orphans and other young vulnerable persons and people with disabilities (PWDs). Other priority areas of focus also included increasing productivity in both formal and informal sectors as well as gender and equity budgeting in sectors and districts.
