Local Government Councils’ Performance and Public Service Delivery in Uganda Nakapiripirit District Council Score-Card Report 2009/2010

“This district report provides evidence-based policy options needed to improve the role of Nakapiripirit district local government council in the delivery of public services and the deepening of democracy and accountability in Uganda. By focusing on the political side of the local government system, the Local Government Councils Score Card seeks to complement existing local government performance assessments and in particular the Annual Assessment of Minimum Conditions and Performance Measures for Local
Governments. At an individual level, the annual score-card assessment provides a
civic education platform for district councilors and political leaders to improve their performance especially in areas where their performance has been found wanting. In the long run, the resulting impact will be the constituents’ ability to demand for accountability on service delivery issues that concern them whenever they are in contact with their elected leaders.”
