Under the National Development Plan II(NDP II) the Government of Uganda has committed itself to increase water supply coverage in the rural areas from 65% in 2012/13 to 79% by 2019/20. The Ministry of Water and Environment, as the lead government agency in pursuing these aspirations, also has the duty to effectively monitor, document and report progress towards the above target, for improved water service delivery. During the period 1999-2000, the Ministry of Water and Environment published its first Water Atlas which was launched in 2004.
