Location: Kampala, Ouganda

What:

The Uganda Community of Practice on Managing for Development Results (CoP-MfDR), under the leadership of the Office of the Prime Minister of Uganda, will organize a high-level meeting on MfDR peer review from November 25-27, 2015 in Kampala, Uganda.

The Peer Review workshop will be held to inform stakeholders on progress made since a workshop on Managing for Development Results, held in June 2015 in Kampala.

Who:

The meeting, which brings together key stakeholders from government ministries and parliament, the private sector, and civil society, is an opportunity to share knowledge and discuss the modalities and implementation of the MfDR readiness assessment in Uganda.

The event is supported by the Africa for Results initiative (AfriK4R) of the African Development Bank (AfDB) Group. The AfriK4R initiative of the African Community of Practice (AfCoP), of which Uganda is a member, seeks to help accelerate regional integration, establish effective public financial systems, facilitate trade and improve the business climate on the African continent. It does this through knowledge and best practice exchange on managing for development results between member states of the West African Economic and Monetary Union (WAEMU) and the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA).

The meeting represents one of the activities of Uganda’s AfriK4R roadmap on results-based management. It will provide stakeholders with an opportunity to examine and build consensus around the 100-day activities proposed during the June 2015 workshop.
