The project's original objectives were to: a) improve living conditions and alleviate poverty in Kampala; b) improve urban financial management; and 3) strengthen institutional capacity. As part of the mid-term restructuring, monitor modifications were made to these objectives: 1) strengthen the Kampala City Council's (KCC) ability to better deliver, finance, and maintain basic urban services for all Kampala residents, particularly the poor; 2) assist KCC in getting demonstratable physical improvements on the ground aimed at gaining credibility with the people it serves; and 3) strengthen the institutional capacity of sector institutions. The Note discusses the impact on the ground and the lessons learned from implementing the project.
