The Parish Development Model is a Government strategy or approach for organizing and delivering public and private sector interventions for wealth creation and employment generation at the parish level as the lowest economic planning unit. This will ensure support for more Ugandans to increase their demand for goods and services.
The purpose of the PDM is to:
i. Deepen the decentralization process;
ii. Improve household incomes;
iii. Enable inclusive, sustainable, balanced and equitable socio-economic transformation; and
iv. Increase accountability at local levels.
This implies eradication of poverty and vulnerability, as well as total transformation of the subsistence households (both on-farm and off-farm, in rural and urban settings) into the money economy.
