The vision for the water and sanitation sub-sector (of the water and environment sector) is best articulated by the Ministry of Water and Environment (MWE) vision and mission statements which state the vision as: Sound management and sustainable utilisation of water and environment resources for the betterment of the population of Uganda; and the Mission as: to promote and ensure the rational and sustainable utilisation, development and effective management of water and environment resources for socio-economic development of the country. Since 2008, the water and sanitation sector was merged with the environment and natural resources sector to become the water and environment sector. Overall sector coordination is through the Water and Environment Sector Working Group (WESWG). Water and sanitation then technically became a sub-sector. Under the water and sanitation sub-sector, there are the following components: Water Resources Management (WRM), Rural Water Supply (RWS),
Urban Water Supply and Sewerage (UWSS), Water for Production (WfP) and Sanitation. However to avoid relegating these components below sub-sector levels, it has been agreed that these components be treated or referred to as sub-sectors in this Sector Investment Plan (SIP) to make it consistent with earlier studies and the current planning scenarios.
