Monthly Report: Japan and UNIDO to build Equipment Operator Training Centre in Uganda
The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), the Government of Japan, and the Ministry of Works and Transport (MoWT) , with technical support from Japanese partner Komatsu Ltd., will establish a training centre for operators of road construction equipment in Luwero, Uganda.
In recent years, the Government of Uganda has procured road construction and maintenance equipment that was distributed to local district governments across the country; and the new training centre will allow matching the investment in road machinery with an equivalent investment in human resources: within the next three years, the training centre will train at least 50 MoWT instructors, 360 MoWT and local district government operators, and over 80 young Ugandans seeking employment. The project supports “Uganda Vision 2040” and focuses in particular on bridging the skills gap so that skilled Ugandans can build, maintain, and improve the country’s road infrastructure.
