Frequently Asked Questions on Decentralisation in Uganda

by S.W. Kisembo

Uganda instated a decentralisation policy in 1992 aiming to introduce a system that would meet local needs. The 1995 constitution consolidated the process, and the local government act of 1997 provided the legal framework. Changes in the system of local government were fundamental, given that the country had previously been governed under a centralised system.

This book brings together a series of 190 questions relating to these laws and systems of public administration. Areas covered include: financial management; central- local fiscal relationships; councils and councilors; independent bodies of local governments; institutions and linkages; personal payments; and procurement.
