The Program on integrated local finances for sustainable urban development in the Greater Kampala Metropolitan Area (PIFUD) aims to strengthen urban governance, as well as, prosperity and innovation in cities.
Its main objectives are to:
- Strengthen the enabling institutional, regulatory and administrative environment for local finance & investment;
- Upscale local finance to foster innovation and investment in sustainable and inclusive solutions; and
- Enhance investments for safe, affordable, smart and low-carbon services and infrastructures through robust efficient smart solutions.
Funded by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for International Cooperation and Development, and co-led by Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) and the Global Fund for Cities Development (FMDV), the 4 million € program runs over a 4-year period (2020-2024), and co-benefits KCCA and the intermediary cities of the Greater Kampala Metropolitan Area (GKMA).
In it's first year of implementation, the focus of PIFUD in 2020 will be on the organization of Policy
Dialogues that will tackle the broad range of issues related to the regulatory and legal environment of municipal finance in Uganda.
