ABSTRACT

The research study was on decentralization policy and rural development in Kisekka sub county Lwengo district. The objectives of the study were to establish

the role of decentralization policy on rural development, the challenges of decentralization policy on rural development and the possible solutions to the bchallenges in Uganda. The major objective of the study was to examine the role

of decentralization in the promotion of good governance Kisekka Sub County. Research question one sought to find out the role of decentralization policy on rural development, research question two sought to establish the challenge of decentralization policy in promoting rural development, while research question three sought establish the solutions to the challenges of decentralization policy in rural development in Kisekka Sub County. The research designing employed during the study was case study design and quantitative approach was used in

data analysis. Random and purposive sampling procedures were used, the methods of data collection were mainly questionnaire, observation and documentary review. It was established that the local government under decentralization policy has tried to provide health services to a less extent, the

health services provided by the government in the area through decentralization policy are not enough, equitability and inclusiveness in decision making is

nonexistence in the district, also that the policy has not yet brought good service delivery to the area and lack of adequate funding at the local level. However,

there are significant possibilities, which can be harnessed by essential stakeholders including the state and the people. The possibilities can form a

critical basis for making decentralization as a positive-sum solution for Uganda rather than a zero-sum one as was the case before. It is imperative for the Districts and Urban Governments to raise their own revenue and use it efficiently in the provision of services for effective decentralization system which leads to good governance. Donor funds; another important achievement on the improvement of financial resources by local government is the way in which donor funds are channeled. Previously all donor assistance needed to be based on an

agreement between foreign donors and the central government of the Republic of Uganda which is not the case today
