Government of Uganda asked to adopt creative processes in planning as opposed to the traditional problem-solving approach.
James Ham, the country director of Peace Corps Uganda said it’s very important for the country to shift from the usual problem-based planning and use the creative and visionary approach if it is to realize its planned goal of attaining middle-income status.
The country needs to have a paradigm shift in planning from the usual problem-based approach to more specific and self-oriented planning said Ham. Governments need to borrow a leaf from the private sector especially non-governmental organisations which emphasize a results-based approach to development.
The two-generation approach ensures that the youth are involved in the development process instead of mere rhetoric of youth are the leaders of tomorrow. The approach to development ensures that youths are prepared for the future and are actively participating in the development process which is an assurance of continuity. This is a serious challenge to the planning authority and pledged to integrate such an approach while developing plans for the country. said Okot.
