Reflections from Ugandan civil society

“We have a vibrant civil society in Uganda, but there is need for increased coordination and sharing of information.”

“Most organisations in this area still lack capacity and skills to cause any real change. We need more of these trainings.”

“In Uganda, the EITI process is still a no-go area. The government looks at CSOs working on EITI as enemies.”
