Handbook on Decentralisation in Uganda

by S.W. Kisembo

The decentralisation policy occupies an important place in the political landscape in Uganda. It affects virtually all important decisions and programmes at both central and local government levels. Yet accurate information about the legislation and policies governing decentralisation has been difficult to obtain.

This handbook sets out the relevant legislation, and explains the rationale behind the policy. It presents the legal framework of the local government system, and discusses the pertaining acts of parliament. The areas covered are: the legal framework for local government; the local governments act, 1997; good governance indicators; financial management; intergovernmental fiscal relationships; accountability; human resource management; and procurement at local government level.
