Competitiveness and Enterprise Development Project (CEDP) is a 5-year project that is supporting reforms geared towards improving the competitiveness of Uganda by improving the business environment, lowering the cost of doing business and improving competitiveness of selected high-impact sectors.



Land Administration Reform

The transformational nature of land administration reform is important for private sector development in Uganda.

Business Registration and Licencing Reforms

Business registration continues to be burdensome, inefficient, slow and a significant barrier to entering the Uganda market.

Tourism Competitiveness Development 

Tourism is Uganda’s fastest growing industry with an average annual growth rate of 21%.

Matching Grant Facilities

The MGF is a competitive grant aimed at improving the capacity, enhancing productivity and competitiveness of private sector in Uganda.



The CEDP PDO is to improve the competitiveness of enterprises in Uganda by providing support to the implementation of business environment reforms, including land administration reform. Details


The Government of Uganda formally delegated the responsibility for project implementation to the Private Sector Foundation Uganda (PSFU), through a Project Coordination Unit (PCU). Details


CEPD usually seeks suppliers/ bidders/ contractors to provide/obtain different services and products. Find information on our procurement processes and complaint procedures, here.
