Youth Entrepreneurship in Uganda: Policy, Evidence and Stakeholders

Youth unemployment and underemployment pose a formidable challenge for the Government of Uganda. As a result, the government has embraced youth entrepreneurship as an avenue to expand employment opportunities. This report sheds light on the developments of youth entrepreneurship policies in the country. In a bid to increase research uptake and the use of evaluation evidence in policy formulation and programming, this report analyses and provides a perspective on youth entrepreneurship along three interrelated dimensions: policy, evidence and stakeholders. The objective therefore is to determine to the extent to which youth entrepreneurship policies in Uganda are evidence based and the nature of the stakeholders involved in the decision-making process. With regard to methods, the study reviewed previous research and impact evaluations of different programme packages on business and labour market outcomes in Uganda and beyond.
