Capacity Building for Strengthening Diaspora Resource Mobilisation and Utilisation

That diaspora remittances topped $879.4m in the financial year 2011/2012, higher than coffee at $466.6m, shows just how much a huge contribution they make to Uganda’s economy.

Uganda has had its fair share of high profile corruption cases in public office, an act that undermines some of the core functions of leadership, especially service delivery.

The Accountable Democratic Governance component is designed to deliver on three key outcomes which focus on assisting selected institutions at both national and local government levels to deliver credible elections, provide access to justice and also enable oversight institutions to be accountable, and deliver demand driven social and economic services among others.
