This report examines the distribution of unpaid care and domestic work in households in the Ugandan districts of Kaabong, Kabale and Kampala. It seeks to understand the connection between social norms and the gendered division of work, including how much time women, men, boys and girls spend on paid work and unpaid care work in a day, as well as how this time use varies between urban and rural areas and between the districts in the study. The authors look closely at childcare, who undertakes it and why. They also analyse what kinds of services are available in each district that might ease the care workload for women and girls.
The report makes recommendations for the Ugandan government and relative authorities on how they can recognize, reduce and redistribute care work through policy changes, labour-saving devices and technology, better infrastructure and the provision of care services.

In 2004, the Ministry of Water and Environment (MoWE) unveiled a policy to expand water supply services to the poor in urban as well as rural areas. This was updated in 2006. The policy set the target of 100 percent coverage for water supply and sanitation (WSS) services in urban areas by 2015. In response to the policy, in 2004 the National Water and Sewerage Corporation, (NWSC) which is responsible for service delivery in Kampala, undertook a series of measures to implement the pro-poor policy in urban areas.
This case study assesses the impact of pro-poor measures implemented by the NWSC since 2004, identifies the key factors that affected the outcomes of these policies and strategies, proposes areas for improvement, and identifies lessons that can be learned and shared from the experience in Uganda. The primary purpose of the case study is to expand the scope and increase the effectiveness of NWSC's pro-poor policy.
