Summary This report examines legal and administrative barriers to domestic and foreign investment in Uganda that have a gender dimension. Building on the findings of "Uganda: administrative barriers to investment update" (FIAS 2003), the assessment includes additional, gender-related barriers to growth and investment. Addressing these issues represents a significant move toward creating an enabliing environment for all businesses in Uganda and unlocking the economic potential of Uganda's women. The report makes recommendations for gender-related legal and administrative reforms in the light of ongoing initiatives by the Government of Uganda. In addition to providing analysis and recommendations for Uganda, it develops an approach for growth and gender assessments that can be adopted in other countries
