Goals: One of the four goals of the PRSP in Uganda is to ensure good governance and security.
Public actions: Recent UPPAP findings demonstrate major differences in the poverty profile of different districts. This resulted in policymakers’ recognizing the need for more flexibility in the use of central government conditional grants to districts.
Indicators: Indicators are linked to PRSP goals and cover economic opportunities, human development, security, and empowerment (democratization and decentralization, human rights, law and order).
Budget allocations: Significantly more resources, including HIPC resources, have been directed to improving water supply. The findings from the UPPAP were included in the Background to the Budget 1999-2000. Measures to increase political accountability are being considered for funding with HIPC savings. With the Ministry of Local Government, the UPPAP will work directly with local governments to strengthen their capacity to consult poor communities for the purposes of district planning and budgeting.
