One of the broad areas of NDP II is the Social Development Sector under which Culture and Creative Industries fall. Culture and Creative Industries was prioritised as one of the key intervention areas. The interventions provided under the Social Development Sector include:
1. Promote culture and creative industries.
2. Promote culture for economic development and social transformation.
3. Strengthen the legal and policy framework for culture and creative industries.
Government started on the processes of reviewing key laws in the sector such as Uganda National Cultural Centre Act, National Culture Policy, and Principles for Films Strengthening law. Strengthened civil society participation in the implementation of the National Culture Policy by stakeholders through the National Culture Forum. Culture and Creative Industries were mainstreamed in sectoral plans at the central and local government level. NDP II influenced Culture Development Cooperation between Uganda and different countries.
The NDP II evaluations observed that little attention was paid to the Culture and Creative Industries sector. It noted a need to promote culture and entertainment for purposes of tourist attraction and facilitation.
