The International Budget Partnership collaborates with civil society around the world to analyze and influence public budgets in order to reduce poverty and improve the quality of governance.
IBP is compiling a new set of case studies and we need your help! The case studies will capture the impact of civil society campaigns to influence government budget policy and implementation and improve the delivery of public services. If your organization has an undocumented campaign that you would like to see highlighted please submit an outline of the case to IBP (email@example.com) by 10 August 2014.
Entries should be no more than 500 words (or one page) and meet the following criteria:
- Capture a CSO’s efforts to influence government budget policy or practice, in an attempt to address specific service delivery issues.
- Capture a CSO campaign that received a material response from government, whether it was positive or negative.
- Capture a “success” story or a situation where the CSO was not able to achieve the intended change in government budget policy or practice.
On 14 July, the Uganda Debt Network launched a new community radio program that will serve as a platform for increased community participation in monitoring and evaluating government service delivery. The live interactive talk show will air on the first and last Saturday of each month on the Bunyoro Broadcasting Station.
