Aid in Uganda - programme and policies

Book/book chapter

This study provides background information and examines development planning in the colonial period, the first Ugandan five-year plan as well as aid and the influnce of political factors in Uganda.

Following a general survey, the author looks particularly at British and American aid and problems of technical assistance. Furthermore, the author demonstrates the distorting effects of tied aid upon the economy of a developing country, argues that the British High Commission should have supplementary technical staff to deal with matters of aid and links this to the need for greater consultation among donors responsible for aid programmes in Uganda.
