In 2012, USAID/Uganda created a District Operational Planning and Coordination framework (DOP) to ensure that USAID “focus” districts (where considerable multi-sectoral resources are prevalent) implement complimentary development efforts that are aligned with Uganda’s district development planning practices, as outlined in USAID/Uganda’s Country Development Coordination Strategy (CDCS) 2011-2015.  Through this framework, DOP  advances the Paris Declaration Principles of Aid Effectiveness and the Government of Uganda’s Partnership Policy, providing a framework for planning and coordinating USAID assistance with districts to achieve shared development objectives through a more efficient and effective approach.

The DOP Coordinator, placed through the Emerging Markets Development Advisers Program (EMDAP), will provide support in achieving the DOP objectives, which are the following: Ensure that USAID programs are aligned with district development plans; Eliminate duplication and improve complementarities among USAID implementing partners, and to increase collaboration and communication with local governments and other stakeholders working at the district level; Strengthen partner districts and USAID’s joint coordination, implementation, monitoring and evaluation procedures and practices within the district; and increase district governments’ understanding of USAID’s portfolio and increase feedback to USAID on project performance.
