Learning Symposium: Social Accountability at 360°; Getting Citizens Engaged in Service Delivery

April 02, 2019 to April 04, 2019
Hotel Africana, Kampala, Uganda and Online

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 organized 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 was to bring together these partners at their different levels to share models, experiences, successes and challenges in social accountability.

The symposium was composed of 2 days of on-line social media discussion (2 and 4 April) and an in-person conference on April 3.

 

Read Jeff Thindwa’s speech at the AFIC Uganda Symposium and takeaways on why citizens must have a voice in governance.
