Name:MWE MINISTERIAL POLICY STATEMENT FY 2013-2014
Description:

This Ministerial Policy Statement 2013 -2014 has been anchored on the theme for this year's budget theme called "Priorities for
Renewed Economic Growth and Development". This theme represents the Government's will and determination to transform Uganda into a country of opportunity and prosperity for all Ugandans. It shouldbe noted that Water and Environment are drivers to economic growth and national socio-economic transformation and sustainable development. This is manifested in National Development Plan (NDP) as well as the sector's strategic objectives.

In view of that, the sector's is committed to provision of safe water and sanitation in both rural and urban areas. Although the coverage stands at 65% and 70% respectively, our challenge is to achieve 100% water coverage for all Ugandans by the year 2015. The sector is equally committed to increase cumulative storage for water for production currently estimated at 22 million cubic meters, address the rampant environmental degradation through restoration of ecosystems and demarcation of critical wetland/forest boundaries including tree planting. In addition, effort will be put on mitigation and adaptation interventions to address climate change effects and promote socio-economic transformation and sustainability.
