UPSIDE is Private Sector Development Programme through which Denmark is contributing to sustainable and inclusive economic growth in Uganda with the overall aim of assisting Uganda to realise Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) i.e. 1 (poverty), 8 (economic growth) and 16 (peace). UPSIDE will support Uganda in pursuing one of the four overall development objectives of the 2nd National Development Plan (NDPII) namely; to increase sustainable production, productivity and value addition in key growth opportunities. In order to achieve this, Denmark will fund three engagements, namely; Northern Uganda Resilience Initiative (NURI), Agricultural Business Initiative (aBi), and Trademark East Africa (TME) from 2018-22. Following the signing of the Government to Government Agreement with the Government of Uganda in December 2017 all the three UPSIDE engagements were launched in May;
