Public-Private Partnerships (PPP) are a relatively new means of service delivery in Uganda and have mostly occurred in the form of large, national-level projects. Recently, local governments have explored the potential of partnerships in order to provide better services to their residents. To help facilitate local governments in developing these partnerships, the Municipal Development Partnership for Eastern and Southern Africa (MDP-ESA) requested a Capstone team to conduct a baseline study of Wakiso Town in Uganda and to assess needs and capacity issues specific to the town. The team interviewed several key stakeholders to identify issues, opportunities, and problems, and prepared recommendations to MDP-ESA and the Wakiso town council by outlining ways to increase capacity for more effective use of PPPs in the future.
