A Working Paper on selected Indicators of Aid Effectiveness: The Ugandan Experience of Ownership and Conditionality

By Deo Kamweya, Aid Liaison, Uganda Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development

This paper looks at how the roles and responsibilities of all stakeholders (government, NGOs, Politicians, CSOs, the private sector, academia, etc) has affected the aid processes in respect to ensuring effective leadership and ownership of the national development strategies and policies in Uganda. An analysis is undertaken of how the overall architecture of external/aid financing has influenced and/or affected ownership of the national development plans. Finally, the roles played by donor agencies with respect to donor conditionality and aid effectiveness is assessed. In doing this analysis, a systematic approach is taken to review the various stages and mechanisms that Uganda has gone through in the process of developing its national strategies, policies and in the formulation of the overall development framework, with special focus on the impacts of aid financing on the national budget, as well as the financing of the long-term development plan, the PEAP.
