Country Reviews of Capacity Development: The Case of Uganda

Poorly functioning public sector institutions and weak governance are major constraints to growth and equitable development in many developing countries. This occasional paper discusses ways Uganda can address its development challenges in light of NDP and a series of poverty alleviation programmes. 

The enactment of Uganda’s first National Development Plan has largely been marked by poor implementation of its activities, leading to poor budget outcomes.

The paper suggests reforms aimed at increasing technical capacity at three levels: budget forecasting, budget operation in responding to budget shortfalls/surplus, and technical efficiency and effectiveness in sectoral reallocation in the face of implementation costs.
