DFID’s governance work in Nepal and Uganda – new ICAI review

22 Jun 2018

The UK’s work to improve governance in Nepal and Uganda is achieving a range of positive results, but it needs stronger strategic orientation to deliver transformational change.

We have published a new performance review into DFID’s governance work in Nepal and Uganda.
