CUSHIONING LOCAL GOVERNMENTS FROM THE IMPACT OF COVID-19

This policy brief presents proposals that will cushion local governments from the impact of COVID-19. Undeniably, responding to Covid-19 challenges at any level is associated with heavy demands on human, financial and logistical resources. Globally, Covid-19 emergence response is multi-sectorial to enable a holistic solution to the concomitant challenges. District councils, a creation of the Local Government Act are mandated to oversee health services. Other than frontline health workers, each district has a community-based services department with officers’ in-charge of probation and social welfare, social rehabilitation, children and youth affairs, gender, disability and elderly, culture, labour and many others. Since the mandate of personnel in this department is to operate in communities, these should be enlisted to respond and manage the community-component of Covid-19.

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.

LOCAL GOVERNMENTS IN UGANDA: Democracy, Accountability and Civic Engagement

While the notion of Local Government remains contentious in literature, consensus appears to be that it brings government nearer to the people. The book discusses operations of the Local Government system in Uganda in the context of social accountability as a tool for deepening democracy. Using ACODE’s social accountability strategies like local government council scorecards, civic engagement meetings and technology, the book examines roles that citizens and the civil society play in solving capacity problems. The book contends that functional decentralization empowers Local Governments, improves service delivery and fosters citizens’ eagerness to demand accountability.

The study relied mainly on an extensive document review of all relevant budget documents focusing mainly on the Draft Estimates of Expenditure (Recurrent and Development) FY 2019/20.

This report concludes that public service delivery in the local governments covered by this study is in a state of flux. While marginal improvements have been made on a few issues such as enrollment in schools and high levels of immunization achieved, there are still major problems relating to the delivery of public services in the country. It is argued that future improvements in the delivery of public services at the local level will only be possible if local government councilors develop the requisite civil capacity and confidence to engage with the central government to achieve fundamental reforms in the way the national budget is organized.....
