Uganda has received a loan of about 200 billion to implement the activities of the second phase of the Northern Uganda Social Action Fund.
The Permanent Secretary of the Office of the Prime Minister, Pious Bigirimana has told journalists at the office of the Prime Minister that that the key objective of the second phase of the NUSAF is to improve access of the beneficiary households to income earning opportunities and basic socio-economic services.
Bigirimana says NUSAF 2 will target the poorest households and communities in Northern Uganda.
He says however the burden of identifying some of these households will lie on the district and sub county administrations since they are on the ground and therefore closer to such communities.
Bigirimana says all the participating districts in the implementation of NUSAF 2 will sign a memorandum of understanding with the Office of the Prime Minister to define the roles and obligations of various stakeholders in the implementation of the project.
He says the district administration will also assign an officer with relevant skills to coordinate the project in the various communities in Northern Uganda.
