This desk study aims at documenting Sweden’s support to Uganda’s water and sanitation sector since the mid 1980s. It goes beyond Sweden’s contributions to the sector and reflects on general developments, including sector performance, reform processes, institutional development, management principles and the shift from project support in the 1980 –1990’s to a sector wide approach and sector budget support from 2001. Major findings are that water services to the rural population have improved tangibly during the past 15 years, but also that great challenges remain in water resources management, sustainable multi-purpose provision of water and in providing water supply to a rapidly growing population. The study was commissioned by Sida and undertaken by Mr Anders
Karlsson of A.S.K. AB. The study was done against the background of the phasing out of Swedish support to the sector during 2010. The phasing out of the sector follows Sweden’s decision to focus on fewer sectors in each country and has been agreed upon by Sweden and Uganda.
