The National Framework for Operation and Maintenance of Rural Water Infrastructure in Uganda (hereafter called ‘the Framework’) was developed by the Ministry of Water and Environment in 2019 with financial support from the Royal Danish Embassy and UNICEF. The objective was to develop options and standards for institutionally and financially sustainable operation and maintenance (O&M) systems for rural water supply infrastructure that are currently not adequately covered by existing management models.
Technical Support Units(TSUs)
The TSU division is primarily mandated to provide specialized support to the District Local Governments in the utilization of the District Water and Sanitation Conditional Grant (DWSCG) and overall implementation of water and sanitation activities. In an effort to ensure efficiency and effectiveness, ten (10) Technical Support Units (TSUs) were established as decentralized structures regionally across the country whose vision is “effective, efficient and strategic support to sector players for improved water and sanitation service delivery.”
