Operation and maintenance of water facilities in Uganda : a case for increased funding

In August 2015, IRC Uganda and the Uganda Water and Sanitation NGO Network (UWASNET) undertook a documentation exercise, to gather evidence of the key issues surrounding O&M in different areas, with a view to advocate for increased funding towards Operation and Maintenance (O&M) and effective management of water supply facilities.

Ten sources were visited in four districts including: Pallisa; Namayingo; Gomba and Kalungu. It was found that in all districts, age-old challenges persist. While the four selected districts have different access and functionality situations, they still have to grapple with two big challenges including ineffective management of water sources and inadequate funding for operation and maintenance.
