Project Description

The development objective of Support to Municipal Infrastructure Development Program Project for Uganda is to enhance the institutional performance of Program Local Government (LGs) to improve urban service delivery. The Government of Uganda (GoU) requested the additional financing (AF) to scale up the successful impacts of the program, both within targeted as well as new localities. As part of processing the AF, the program is also being restructured to : (i) extend the geographical coverage of the program to eight additional municipal local governments (MLGs); (ii) extend the duration of the program by five years; (iii) introduce support to eight districts that have faced a high influx of refugees through financing from the new IDA18 sub-window for refugees and host communities; (iv) and update the Disbursement Link Indicators (DLIs) and performance measures to deepen impact and results in terms of institutional strengthening, planning and financial management, infrastructure provision and local economic development. The Program for Results (PforR) AF will also contribute to the achievement of the objectives in the government’s letter of Policy on refugees and host communities.
