On 23rd March 2016, Uganda National NGO Forum launched 3 key reports to a gathering of over 300 CSOs at Royal Suites Hotel Bugolobi. These three reports will be a huge resource to the civil sector and various other stakeholders at large.
THE 2015 CSO SUSTAINABILITY INDEX REPORT
This report, which includes a whole chapter on Uganda, is one that addresses both advances and setbacks in key dimensions of sustainability of the civil society sector and relies on the knowledge of CSO practitioners and researchers who form an expert panel to asses and rate these dimensions through out the year. UNNGOF leads the related processes and a copy of this report can be found at the link below:
THE STATE OF CIVIL SOCIETY REPORT – key Findings
This first ever report is an attempt at presenting survey based evidence on what civil society looks like in Uganda. This report is based on feedback from 450 questionnaires administered in various civil society organisations across the country and forms the baseline for subsequent reports. Several dimensions are considered in this report including basic legal freedoms; freedom of participation; the state’s role in governance of CSOs; CSO financial viability and sustainability; framework and practices of government; and the cooperation among CSOs and the media, inter alia.

THE 2016 – 2021 UNNGOF STRATEGIC PLAN
UNNGOF developed a new 4 year Strategic Plan which is a roll over of the old 2011 – 2015 plan. This Strategic Plan was developed with guidance and support from various partners including donors, academia, government and CSOs. This strategic plan focuses on intensifying citizen led solutions to existing development challenges. We seek to employ scenario building as a key tool in understanding and appreciating the needs of the CSO sector. We make a deliberate effort to work with a solution focused approach that is informed by an analysis of ‘the future the citizens of Uganda want’. A copy of this report can be found at the link:
