"Given that Uganda has received massive donor aid and implemented donor-engineered policies, poverty remains a jigger to the flesh of Uganda's development. The study aims at examining donor-partner mechanisms and ascertaining the progress thus far achieved in the context of the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness (2005). The study further looks at those issues or challenges facing the Government of Uganda (GoU) in the delivery, harmonization, alignment, coordination, mutual accountability and management of aid under the General Budget Support (GBS), Sectoral Budget Support (SBS), project support and pool fund arrangements. Recommendations are formulated for the attention of Uganda's public institutions, donor agencies and other key stakeholders to put in place enhanced delivery mechanisms for rationalized aid harmonization and effectiveness and to contribute to fostering national development."
