First Annual Report on Corruption Trends in Uganda: Using the Data Tracking Mechanism

Corruption remains an impediment to development and a barrier to poverty reduction in Uganda and many other African countries. The Data Tracking Mechanism (DTM) was launched in 2009 to address growing concern regarding the lack of credible tools and methods to track corruption. This study provides a baseline for tracking corruption over time. There were a large number of findings from the study including, among others: a large gap between Uganda's legal framework and implementation; poor enforcement of political financing disclosure; need for safe and open climate for reporting on corruption; frequency of bribery in citizen interactions with government officials; a need for more data in various areas. Detailed policy recommendations have also been suggested in this report.
