In the ongoing water and environment joint sector review meeting, civil society organisations have made recommendations to improve sector performance
Civil Society Organisation (CSO) under their umbrella organisation Uganda Water and Sanitation NGO Network (UWASNET) applauded the Ministry of Water and Environment (MWE) on the numerous achievements in the just-concluded financial year 2016/17. Key among the achievements are:
CSOs were particularly concerned that the sector had not been able to accomplish some of the undertakings carried from the previous financial years. They were also concerned that while there was a nominal increment in the financial allocations to the sector, the overall water and environment share of the national budget remained low at 3%. Thus on financing the sector, CSOs called upon renewed commitment from both the government of Uganda and development partners. They also called upon close monitoring and supervision to ensure that all funded interventions are implemented within the financial year as planned.
