Cooperation between Union of Baltic Cities (UBC) and Lake Victoria Region Local Authorities Cooperation (LVRLAC), 2004 - 2006
Holger Jonasson , Agnes Mwaiselage
Sida has provided funding since 2000 to enable Lake Victoria Region Local Authorities Cooperation (LVRLAC) to develop as an organisation, mainly through cooperation with Union of Baltic Cities (UBC). The evaluation establishes that this process has been successful, and that LVRLAC is an appropriate, relevant organisation embraced by its members comprising of more than sixty local authorities in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. There have however been delays in implementation of projects, partly due to unclear division of responsibilities and insufficient monitoring. The report further highlights the importance of respecting political processes, and provides advise regarding communication, networking, gender mainstreaming and other topics.
