North-South municipal partnerships, conceptualised as practitioner-to-practitioner, potentially enhance knowledge, learning and practice because of the basis for trust within officer relationships that facilitates joint exploration of ideas. A study of two Uganda-UK municipal partnerships reveals, however, several challenges, including the extent to which practitioner differences enable critical reflection and the capability to turn learning into improved practice at both individual and institutional levels.
