Output-based contracts in small-town water supply in Uganda: Challenges and opportunities

30 Sep 2011

This report presents findings from a review of the role of the domestic private sector in the delivery of urban water in Uganda.  Since the introduction of the output-based aid (OBA) scheme in 2008, some towns have seen a relatively rapid increase in the number of connections, while using less public funding than under traditional management contracts. However, replication elsewhere is unlikely to be successful without consideration of the underlying structural and institutional reform conditions in Uganda.
