Ambassador Yonov Agah (Nigeria)
81. The representative of Uganda said that Uganda had submitted its needs assessment on 9 October 2007 (IP/C/W/500), as provided for in paragraph 2 of the 2005 Decision. He recalled that, at the Council's last meeting, Uganda had made preliminary remarks on the importance of the assessment exercise and listened to the feedback from other Members which in many ways had provided the way forward. It had been realized that Uganda needed to take a further step to package its priorities into bankable projects to be presented to donors. Uganda fully supported the assessment and the road map outlined by the Chairman and would be engaging with development partners to implement the projects.
