Short Description:

Overall goal

Good Governance and Security represents one of the four pillars of the Ugandan Government's policy on poverty eradication (PEAP - Poverty Eradication Action Plan). Decentralisation is part of Good Governance and is supported by Austria and representatives of donor countries such as Ireland, Denmark and the Netherlands. The main financial burden, however, is carried by the International Development Agency (IDA/Worldbank). The objectives of LGDP II are to improve service delivery of basic services to engender economic growth and poverty reduction according to the Government decentralization policy and to improve Local Government institutional performance for sustainable, decentralized service delivery. The project comprises the following five components: (1) support to the overall decentralization process, (2) Local Development Grant (as alternative to sector grants), (3) Local Government Capacity Building Grant, (4) Local Revenue Enhancement and (5) Support to Programme Management and Co-ordination. The Austrian funds are dedicated to Component 3. Key indicators for the performance of the programme shall be the existence of Development Plans in Local Governments, timely submission of final accounts and increase in own revenue sources.
