The districts to be assessed include Arua and Gulu in northern Uganda, Masaka in Central, Mbarara and Kasese in the West and Mbale and Soroti in the East.

All members of the research teams are to go through a two day technical training to support them in gaining deeper understanding of the methodology and tools of the assessment. Renowned academician Dr. Yasin Olum on Makerere University shall facilitate the training.
