Government through the Ministry of Finance, together with the Government of Norway on Wednesday signed the Oil for Development Programme Agreement, with the ambition of further strengthening the management of the oil and gas sector in Uganda.
The agreement was signed between the Uganda’s Minister for Finance, Matia Kasaija and the Norwegian Ambassador in Uganda Susan Eckey at the Ministry offices in Kampala
The Oil for Development Programme is designed to assist developing countries to manage their petroleum resources in a sustainable manner and to target poverty reduction through managing petroleum responsibly, economically, environmentally and socially.
Norway and Uganda have been committed to this programme since 2009. The signing marks the programme’s third phase, running from 2018 to 2022.
The Oil for Development Programme remains a key priority of Norway’s engagement with Uganda, as part of our strategic goals of promoting sustainable management of natural resources and good governance.
