After years of mis-management, Uganda began to recognise the need for an effective framework to regulate and develop its water resources. There is a requirement within a democratised society to embark on policies that are visionary in their formulation of future objectives and targets, yet flexible enough in their implementation to fit into the existing political, economic and social framework. The rural water supply sector's policies combine these overall 'big picture' objectives with the pragmatic approaches so necessary for success.
