The Country Policy and Institutional Assessment (CPIA) evaluates the quality of a country’s present policy and institutional framework. Quality refers to how conducive that framework is to fostering poverty reduction, sustainable growth, and the effective use of development assistance. The CPIA ratings are used in the International Development Aid (IDA) allocation process and several other corporate activities and are consistent with the economic rating of the World Bank and the African Development Bank. This report presents the CPIA rankings for Uganda, as guided by document reviews, with validation and agreement by the key stakeholders. The rankings are based on a number of different criteria, including four major themes divided into various sub-themes that are subdivided into specific economic indicators. The four thematic areas include: Economic Management; Structural Policies; Social Inclusion/Inequality; and Governance focusing on Public Sector Management and Institutions.
