Description

The Uganda government and its development partners have long been concerned that local governments in that country lacked adequate structural and financial resources to combat poverty effectively. In response to this challenge, assessment programs were implemented with the intent of helping local governments improve in the performance of their capital development activities. This study compares the recently concluded Local Government Development Program II with its successor, the Local Government Management Service Delivery Program. At the national level, a number of the local governments were identified that face sanctions due to their underperformance. Another comparison is then made of lower level government performance in the Mukono District. Recommendations are made for improving the assessment program in light of recent developments in the country.
