Uganda - HIPC Debt Initiative Project (English)

Funding will be provided to the Republic of Uganda under the Heavily Indebted Poor Countries (HIPC) Debt Initiative in respect of debt owed by it to the International Development Association (IDA). This report and recommendation address: (i) the assistance that is proposed to be provided by IDA in the form of IDA grants during the interim period; (ii) the relief that is proposed to be provided in respect of debt owed to IDA at the completion point; and (iii) the structural and social development performance criteria that Uganda will need to have satisfied at the completion point in order for the assistance under the HIPC Debt Initiative to be provided at that time. This project will support the implementation of the Government's economic and social program as spelled out in the Policy Framework Paper and provide, in conjunction with other creditors, special assistance that will allow Uganda to reach a sustainable debt position by the completion point.
