The Local Government Councils' Scorecard FY 2018/19: The Next Big Steps; Consolidating Gains of Decentralisation and Repositioning the Local Government Sector in Uganda
This eighth national Local Government Councils Scorecard report presents findings and results of the performance of elected political leaders at the district levels during the Financial Year 2018/2019. The Local Government
Councils Scorecard FY 2018/19 report takes stock of where Uganda is on the road to full realization of
the vision of decentralization and recommends a broad array of steps that would
take the country much closer to that destination.
The Scorecard methodology is unique in that it combines
capacity-building and evidence-based assessment of elected local government
leaders in a way that both strengthens local government institutions and holds
leaders accountable for delivering the public services to which citizens are entitled.
The methodology, described in this book, also incorporates an innovative civic
engagement action planning process that builds capacity among citizens to use the
tools of civic engagement to demand that public services are delivered.
We publish our work in five different series: research papers, briefing papers, dialogue reports, accountability reports and fact sheets.
