In this report, Dr. Sarah Ssewanyana, the EPRC Executive Director, stresses the fact that key drivers of inclusive development are decent work and income for youth and women.

She explained that, in Uganda, the pandemic has caused a grave disruption in job availability, education, and training, and has created difficulties for the transition from school to work. The Ugandan National Household Survey (2019–2020) revealed how employment in the construction, trade, hotel, and restaurant sectors decreased during the pandemic, making it even harder for young people and women to get a shot at employment opportunities.
