CBMS-12897 Enhancing the Implementation of the Community Information System to Inform Youth Employment Strategie


Within the Uganda decentralisation framework, planning and decision making powers were devolved from the centre to Local Governments. This devolution increasingly demands that Local Governments (LGs) are responsible for efficient service delivery within their areas of jurisdiction. This unequivocally creates the need for increased capacity in LGs to enable them to collect, analyse, store, retrieve and utilize reliable information for decision making as well as monitoring the outcomes of development interventions by the various stakeholders. Against this background, the Ministry of Finance Planning and Economic Development through the Department of Economic Development Policy and Research (EDPR) has been collaborating with Uganda Bureau of Statistics (UBOS) in the implementation of the Community Information System (CIS). The purpose of the CIS is to facilitate evidence based planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of Government and other development partner programmes. It is aimed at generating basic information from households and communities to monitor household and community welfare as well as promote effective utilization of information at the grass root.
