Background

The UN Summit on the Millennium Development Goals concluded with the adoption of a global action plan to achieve the eight anti-poverty goals by their 2015 target date and the announcement of major new commitments for women's and children's health and other initiatives against poverty, hunger and disease. Uganda has showed a good performance in some MDGs, whereas in some others it seems to be out of track. One biggest issue to keep track of those divergences in performance are regional disparities, sometimes there are huge regional differences within the country. There are some areas of Uganda which are performing better others and in order to be able to plan for more precise interventions that could address the disparities it is necessary to localise the MDGs.

As part of this MDG localisation process for Uganda, 5 districts were selected through the regional dissemination exercise of the 2007 National Human Development Report and Millennium Development Goals Reports. Uganda Bureau of Statistics (UBOS) in partnership with United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) facilitated five (5) local governments to generate disaggregated MDG indicators at district level. The programme was piloted in five (5) districts of Arua, Kabarole, Kumi, Moroto and Rakai. A baseline survey was undertaken in each of the 5 districts to yield benchmark statistics on the MDG indicators at constituency level. The process generated very interesting results and the reports have been drafted.
