Support to the Ministry of Water and Environment (MWE) to compile the 2010 Water and Sanitation Sector Performance Report (SPR). The report provides a succinct and transparent overview of investments, targets, achievements and outputs for water and sanitation, as well as the environment and natural resources in Uganda. It includes data and analysis with respect to the access, functionality and equity of improved water supplies and sanitation, hygiene, per capita investment cost, water quality, water storage, gender and community management as well as forest cover and land use.

Description of the Project:
The SPR covers rural water supply and sanitation, urban water supply and sanitation, water resources management, water for production as well as the environment and natural resources. Information for the report is collected by MWE, District Local Government, Government Agencies, i.e. the National Water and Sewerage Corporation (NWSC), National Environmental Management Authority (NEMA), National Forestry Authority (NFA) and non-governmental organisations.
A small secretariat within MWE was supported by Skat to coordinate and review inputs (some 25 mini-reports), provide feedback, compile a zero draft report and prepare the final SPR. This consultancy provides quality assurance of the report and builds the analytical and writing skills of staff in the above listed organisation.
The key outputs of the consultancy were a new and improved structure of the report, guidance notes for preparing the inputs, a consolidated SPR 2010 paper reflecting on the process of report preparation and a popular version (published as a newspaper supplement).
