|Name:||Programme Document (JWESSP 2013 - 2018)|
The Government of Uganda (GoU), represented by the Ministry of Water and Environment (MWE), and the water and environment sector Development Partners (DPs) intend to implement a Joint Water and Environment Sector Support Programme (JWESSP) from July 2013 to June 2018. The programme is a successor to the on-going Joint Water and Sanitation Sector Programme Support (JWSSPS) which ends by June 2013. In line with the mandate of MWE and the merging of the sectors the new JWESSP will also incorporate support to the environment and natural resources (ENR) sub-sector.
The proposed JWESSP will be an integral part of the national sector framework, as the core instrument for joint support in the context of a Sector-Wide Approach (SWAp) for the Water and Environment Sector. During the last decade substantial DP support to the Water and Sanitation (WSS) sub-sector contributed to the development of a sound policy, strategic planning/budgeting, implementation and monitoring framework including the implementation of a series of sector reforms. The necessary harmonised mechanisms for coordination, financial management, performance review, joint decision making and technical support are essentially in place and have been refined continuously, with gradual alignment to government systems to the extent possible.It is expected that the ENR sub-sector, which has had much less DP support in the past, will benefit from these achievements.
The attached document is the final Programme Document after it was updated/revised based recommendations of the joint Appraisal Team and the Programme Preparatory Committee. It is expected that the key stakeholders will sign the financial agreements by May or June 2013 for the programme to start by July 2013.
