Danish Support to Good Governance in Uganda

Good Governance is instrumental to poverty reduction by improving rule of law, ensuring more transparency in government systems, budgets, decision making, access to information, by reducing corruption, and by making public service delivery to the people more effective and efficient.

Denmark has supported activities in the area of governance in Uganda for more than 20 years with programmes for democratisation, justice, peace and conflict resolution, promotion and protection of human rights, anti-corruption as well as public sector management reforms incl. decentralisation. The Uganda Good Governance Programme - UGOGO - formally commenced in July 2011. It will run up to December 2017.  

UGOGO has three components:
1. The Democratic Governance Facility
2. Support to the Justice, Law & Order Sector
3. Accountable Local Service Delivery

The Danish support to Good Governance is coordinated with other development partners who have interventions in the same areas of focus. Likewise, the Embassy is working together with national stakeholders and development partners to align funding mechanisms and priority interventions.


Details about each of the UGOGO components are outlined under the submenu 'Uganda Good Governance Programme – UGOGO’.
