Dissemination Meeting for UWONET's Research Studies

Thursday, 20 February 2020
Hotel Africana

The Uganda Women's Network (UWONET) secretariat on behalf of Women Democracy Group (WDG) shall disseminate findings of  a research on gender mainstreaming in local governments and mid-term review of the women's manifesto 2016-2021. The half day meeting is scheduled to take place on Thursday 20th February 2020 at Hotel Africana starting at 8:30am. 

In 2019, WDG with support from Democratic Governance Facility (DGF) undertook a research on gender mainstreaming in selected local governments and documented good practices and lessons from the districts of Arua, Isingiro, Luweero, Bukedea and Oyam. In addition, a midterm review of the women's manifesto was carried out with an aim of  assessing the implementation of commitments on the Women's Manifesto by NRM and opposition political parties in Parliament of Uganda based on party manifestoes 2016-2021 for a period 2016-2019.

UWONET has thus organised a dissemination and information sharing fora that will focus on sharing findings from the two key reports namely:

1. Gender mainstreaming in Local Governments: Good practices and lessons learnt from districts of Arua, Isingiro, Bukedea, Oyam and Luwero

2. The midterm review of the women's manifesto 2016-2021 .
