Who we are
SUGAR TAF is a 5-year programme funded by DFID and the EU, implemented by Adam Smith International (ASI) and the Basel Institute. It began in May 2015 and is scheduled to complete in April 2020. This website will remain for several years beyond the finish of SUGAR TAF as a repository of knowledge and experiences gained over the course of the programme.
The purpose of SUGAR TAF is to strengthen the fight against corruption in Uganda, primarily by working with government anti-corruption institutions to develop tools and strategies to increase their effectiveness. SUGAR TAF was designed to respond to the specific situation and needs of anti-corruption agencies.
The SUGAR TAF team is led by Valentine Namakula and staffed by people with expertise in anti-corruption investigations, prosecution and adjudication, money laundering and financial profiling, asset recovery, as well as experts in change management, supporting institutional transformation, tracking and improving workflows, leadership, and designing information management systems. Together, the team brings together a power mix of disciplines, with experience both within Uganda and within other jurisdictions. This has allowed it to be responsive and realistic, while also sharing ideas, experiences and inspiration from other regions, such as Kenya, South Africa and the United Kingdom.
