The Civil Society Strengthening component works to enhance capacities of Uganda’s civil society so that they can deliver their core mandate and influence development policies and practices. It works through two main components of capacity Development and Civic Space and Governance Monitoring.
This component works towards building a strong network of civil society organisations at the sub national level, that can collectively engage in a coherent and respected manner. Focus is on ensuring that institutional strength is garnered in an ‘organic way’. Strong civil society organisations are the bedrock for movement building and at the sub-national level, they are ‘greenhouses of democracy’.
Civic Space and Governance Monitoring
UNNGOF seeks to mobilise citizens to engage with development processes as part of their civic role in society. Additionally, work focuses on influencing internal and external (including global) operating environment issues of CSOs and ensuring positive environment for NGO operations and citizen engagement in governance processes.
