    • Project

      Uganda is in the process of joining the Extractives Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI). This  Harnessing Diversity for an Inclusive EITI Agenda project promotes an inclusive and participatory EITI accession process for Uganda.

      It is achieving two objectives namely:

      1) Creating and deepening the understanding of EITI amongst CSOs, LGs and citizen groups for meaningful participation in the UGEITI ongoing process

      2)Enhancing coordination of civil Society interventions in EITI processes for Uganda. The project is being undertaken by three partners; Global Rights Alert-as the project leader, Publish What You Pay-Uganda and Civil Society Coalition on Oil (CSCO) as co implementers.

      The consortium undertakes a process of dialogue and consensus-building in six geographical regions and reaches out to women, young people, local government representatives in oil, gas and mining districts, CSOs, ASMs, Academia, PWDs and other citizen groups on the utility and relevance of adopting EITI, and initial ideas of how to implement EITI.

      The feedback from this consensus-building informs UGEITI’s implementation of the work plan and decision on key areas of focus for Uganda. At the national level, the project engages members of Uganda’s Multi-Stakeholder Group (MSG) to build their capabilities

      The project also engages relevant stakeholders and runs a media campaign to inform the populace about EITI and its relevancy as a tool for transparency and accountability in extractives. The project contributes to bridging the gap between citizens’ agencies and MSG for better voicing of views, concerns and solutions.
