NORAD II Project in Uganda
Oxfam in Uganda is implementing the NORAD II Project in Uganda’s districts of Rakai and Buliisa with partners the Civil Society Budget Advocacy Group (CSBAG) and the Civil Society Coalition on Oil and Gas (CSCO).
The three-year project focuses on building coalitions of active citizens and communities affected by extractive industries. The goal is to help them influence governments to change policies and practices to benefit citizens. Oxfam conducted a baseline study in the districts of Buliisa and Rakai to better understand citizen engagement with the government. The sample consisted of 385 respondents, of whom 61 per cent were from Rakai and 39 per cent, from Buliisa. The findings will inform the design of interventions to improve citizen participation in governance and service delivery processes.
The study applied qualitative and quantitative approaches and cross-sectional study design for data collection and analysis.
