Development of National Parameters for the Appraisal of Public Investment Projects and PPPs - Uganda
The Government of Uganda contracted CRI through the Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development, to estimate the country's national parameters. Using its expertise and experience in this field, CRI computed the Economic Opportunity Cost of Capital (EOCK), the Foreign Exchange Premium (FEP), and the Premium for Non-Trade Commodities (NTP) for Uganda. This project also included the estimation of the economic prices and Commodity Specific Conversion Factors (CSCFs) for over 5000 tradable commodities and ten non-tradable commodities.
A web-based database software was also developed to facilitate easy access to the national parameters, economic prices and conversion factors by project analysts and other stakeholders. The Ugandan National Parameters and Conversion Factors database is available online at http://national-parameters.ug.
