The Government’s ambition, captured in Uganda’s Vision 2040; is to make the Greater Kampala Metropolitan Area (GKMA), one of the most attractive cities in the world, offering its citizens and visitors a safe and efficient city environment. The context is that Kampala is the 13th fastest growing urban centre in the world, with the Jinja-Kampala-Entebbe (JKE) corridor accounting for more than 60 percent of Uganda’s GDP. It is therefore urgent to improve the connectivity and productivity of urban municipalities in the JKE corridor for all citizens, as a driver to strengthen Uganda’s economic growth. In this context, the UK Government has launched the Cities and Infrastructure for Growth (CIG) programme to support the Government of Uganda to unlock its urban potential.
