The Africa Freedom of Information Centre (AFIC) with support from the World Bank Global Partnership for Social Accountability is implementing the ’Enhance Accountability and Performance of social service contracts in Uganda’ project since 2014. AFIC together with the World Bank recognizes the importance of citizens’ engagement to promote better delivery of social services. In this regard, AFIC is organizing a learning event aimed at sharing and offering a learning platform to all partners and stakeholders of AFIC including civil society members, donor community, (local) government officials, academia, community members and members of the Legislative in Uganda. The idea is to bring together these partners at their different levels to share models, experiences, successes and challenges in social accountability.
The symposium will be composed of 2 days of on-line social media discussion (2 and 4 April) and an in-person conference on April 3.
