LOCAL GOVERNMENTS IN UGANDA: Democracy, Accountability and Civic Engagement

    While the notion of Local Government remains contentious in literature, consensus appears to be that it brings government nearer to the people. This book discusses operations of the Local Government system in Uganda in the context of social accountability as a tool for deepening democracy. Using ACODE's social accountability strategies like local government council scorecards, civic engagement meetings and technology, the book examines roles that citizens and the civil society play in solving capacity problems. The book contends that functional decentralization empowers Local Governments, improves service delivery and fosters citizens' eagerness to demand accountability.
