Uganda - Energy for Rural Transformation Project

Uganda's economy had been consistently registering strong economic performance, with an average real rate of growth of about 6.9 percent since 1990/91 and an average annual increase in real per capita income of 3.7 percent over the previous decade. At the same time, development in rural areas had lagged well behind urban areas. Moreover, the quality of rural life was severely constrained by lack of electricity in rural public institutions.
