The United Kingdom's development partnership in Uganda is based on an assessment of the Ugandan Government's commitment to the following principles: respecting human rights and other international obligations; improving public financial management; promoting good governance, transparency and fighting corruption; strengthening domestic accountability and ensuring poverty is reduced in a sustainable manner. Where we judge the partner government shares these partnership commitments, the UK may provide budget support-if we consider this to be the best way to achieve results and value for money for the British tax payer and Ugandan people.
