PUBLIC-PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS (PPPS) IN UGANDA: IMPLICATIONS FOR PRACTICE
AbstractWhile literature on PPPs globally can be found in abundance, in Africa,
there is still limited literature on the contextualization, application,
trends, inventory and account of existing and upcoming PPPs in Uganda.
Based on a review of literature, this study reveals that there is
heightened momentum for the adoption of PPPs compared to a decade ago.
Notwithstanding, a deficiency exists in studies providing a countrywide
review of PPP adoption over the last several decades in Uganda. To this
end, this article investigates the origins of PPPs in Uganda, its legal
and regulatory framework, and surveys existing and upcoming PPPs in the
country. The study also provides a synthesis of how PPPs have performed
so far---including their benefits and challenges. Finally, this study
discusses the implications for practice and policy and outlines a
research agenda for PPPs in Uganda.
