KAMPALA - U.S. Mission Uganda today announced the signing of a cooperation agreement between the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) to design and implement town sanitation plans in four Northern Uganda towns: Oyan, Kamdini, Aduku and Apac. USAID has committed $2 million to the project over a two-year period, while the German Development Cooperation, implemented by GIZ, has agreed to match that contribution.
 
According to WHO/UNICEF estimates, only 34% of urban populations in Uganda have access to proper sanitation facilities. This lack of access to improved sanitation and hygiene hinders the country’s health, education, economic and social development sectors, as well as environmental protection.

It aims to address structural bottlenecks in the economy to accelerate socioeconomic transformation and bring a portion of the third of the population out of poverty. The plan stipulates the Country's medium term strategic direction, development priorities and implementation strategies. In addition, it details Uganda's current development status, challenges and opportunities.
