Although not significantly administrative any more, Uganda regions still stand out. The country is divided into 4 regions. These are both geographical and historical in demarcation and clearly explain certain characteristic differences between them.
Uganda enjoys abundant natural beauty and an elegancy of unique culture, astounding tourist attractions and a startling history. The Uganda regions enjoy the variations of this natural splendour while owning certain characteristics that sets each apart from the rest.
The geographical locations of these regions of Uganda have dictated certain features that have granted each a distinctive status.
The Central Region, rich in culture and history and plays host to the Capital- Kampala ; The Northern Region, on track and rediscovering its glory; The Eastern Region, the agricultural hub; and The Western Region, presents some of the best tourist sites.
Uganda Regions - also shows Districts
The regions are divided into sub-regions that have a cohesive characteristic of either people that speak the same language (this could have different dialects) or united by the same cultural institution- in this case kingdoms or chiefdoms.
The sub-regions are further divided into Uganda districts that provide the administrative structure, control and development at the respective district levels but of course in collaboration with the central government.
Along the same line of administration, the districts are further divided into; sub-counties, parishes and down to the village level.
The role of administration, governance and planning is with the district councils that oversee the running and development of the district and through networking with the other districts within the sub-region, the bigger picture - the region, is enhanced.
