Finance Brief 10: Domestic Resource Mobilisation in Uganda

TITLE: Domestic Resource Mobilisation in Uganda

AUTHOR(S): Renouf R & Norman G

YEAR: 2016

ABSTRACT: Uganda should be in a strong position to improve access to safe water and basic sanitation in both rural and urban areas: it has strong central government institutions and strong WASH policy and regulatory frameworks. However, progress towards its national WASH goals has plateaued, with the proportion of Uganda's annual budget dedicated to water and sanitation falling short of the level needed to reach the country's WASH targets. Efforts to increase domestic resource mobilisation are underway, potentially unlocking new sources of revenue that could be channeled into improving WASH services.
