Skilling Uganda’s youth for the fourth industrial revolution

Key Messages:

  • Ugandan youth risk being negatively affected by the fourth industrial revolution (4IR) if they lack the skills needed to participate in emerging labour market opportunities.
  • Bridging the skills gap through upskilling and reskilling programs are vital to increase youth employability in the 4IR.
  • To be part of the 4IR, young people need diverse expertise, including digital, socio-behavioural, analytical, and technical skills.
  • Prioritising youth competencies for Uganda’s future economic growth requires targeted investing in foundational socio-behavioural education, analytical and technical training, and digital upskilling and reskilling programs.
