Technical Assistance for Capacity Development Support to the Uganda Road Fund (2012-2014)
The Uganda Road Fund is a relatively new organisation (2008) which is to operate as a 2nd Generation Road Fund. It is intended to channel resources to a large portfolio of road maintenance projects administered by a plethora of local and regional agencies, and to monitor the impact of funding, requiring efficient planning, management and monitoring skills. However the full institutional set-up is not yet in place, and the staff still needs capacity development to reach the full status of a 2nd generation Road Fund.
The project aims to improve the technical, financial and internal management organisation of the Road Fund, and to build the capacity of its staff.
