Transparency fundamental to aid effectiveness in Uganda

Samuel Moon and Tim Williamson at the Overseas Development Institute have written a background paper setting out possible steps to improve aid effectiveness in Uganda and ensuring the government-donor partnership remains relevant.
“Reinvigorating the pursuit of more effective aid in Uganda” proposes four key strategies to improve aid effectiveness: ownership, alignment, harmonisation, and managing for results. Mutual accountability is also important, with a need to enhance accountability for project aid through the use of government systems.
Many of these recommendations require transparency of aid information, for example; “The delivery of greater alignment to the budget cycle depends on improving the timely flow of information on project aid flows in the context of budget formulation and reporting. A new aid database, provided it interfaces with the budget, would go a long way towards systematising such information.”
From this paper we can see that aid transparency is essential in delivering aid effectively.
