Strategic Investment Framework for Sustainable Land Management (U-SIF SLM)

The goal of the Uganda Strategic Investment Framework for Sustainable Land Management (U-SIF SLM) is to promote key sectors cooperation to improve natural resource based livelihoods and other ecosystem services. The U-SIF SLM is a multi-sector national initiative to be spearheaded by the Ministry of Agriculture Animal Industry and Fisheries (MAAIF) – the focal ministry for the UNCCD, CAADP and TerrAfrica. The SIF aims at providing an integrated cross-sector approach to investing in solutions to crosscutting SLM challenges.

It also aims at scaling up and mainstreaming SLM into the center of the national development agendas.The development objective is to strengthen sector cooperation in order to halt, reverse and prevent land degradation/ desertification and to mitigate the effects of climate change and variability. The U-SIF SLM has a 10 year (2010-2020) horizon organized into two phases: Phase I (2010-2015) and Phase II (2015-2020. The SIF is intended to be a living document, and the implementation schedule will take the form of a “rolling” programme which will be updated at regular intervals. The planning and sequencing of investments will be aligned with National Development Plan planning horizons, including Medium Term Expenditure Frameworks, and other budgetary processes as well as country/ development partner planning frameworks.
