After years of decline, the rural water sector in Uganda is once again moving forward. Within the sector, the DWD is taking a lead role. Together with the Ministry of Health, its project staff, supported by district administrations and local community groups, are implementing or rehabilitating rural water supply systems right across the country. The rate of progress is quickening and, considering the problems that need to be tackled, visible results are starting to emerge.
