The CSO Aid and Development Effectiveness Platform was conceived in January 2009, following a meeting of CSO stakeholders who underscored the need to deal with pertinent issues concerning aid and development effectiveness in Uganda. The idea was conceptualized by 25 CSOs led by Development Research and Training (DRT) and Uganda National NGO Forum (UNNGOF).
The CSO Aid and Development Effectiveness platform is borne out of the reality that close to 30% of the annual budget and between 70-80% of the development budget are financed by ODA and yet there is no aid policy in place and CSOs do not fully participate in the discussions around aid and development effectiveness in Uganda. The Platform therefore attempts to have collective commitment and action by civil society organizations so as to influence the aid debate in Uganda and globally so that it is responsive to the development needs and priorities of citizens at different levels.
