Young people represent a commanding majority in Uganda: According to the 2016/2017 Uganda National Household Survey (UNHS), more than 70 per cent of the population is under 30 years. With Uganda’s population growing at a rate of over three per cent annually, meeting the socio-economic and political aspirations of youth will pose a major policy challenge over the coming years. Do you want to be part of the Public Dialogue and Launch of the Youth4Policy Cohort 2?
Are you a highly motivated young professional interested in public policy research and analysis? Are you keen to pursue a rigorous high-quality research through a structured public policy training, mentorship and professional development programme?
The roundtable is convened to discuss the context and factors impacting on civil society influence on politics and public policy reforms in Uganda and the entry points that can be leveraged to strengthen this influence.
The Public Policy Institute (PPI) is a not-for-profit individual member-agency established as a platform for public policy research, analysis and engagements. PPI's mission is to develop thought leadership that enriches the social, economic and political wellbeing of citizens through rational and independent public policy research and engagements. The Institute is inviting suitably qualified individuals to submit for consideration, an expression of interest to facilitate the development of a Public Policy Handbook for Uganda.
