National CSO Fair June 27 2014

Uganda Coalition for Sustainable Development and the East African Sustainability Watch Network cordially invites you to a civil society parallel session on: Pursuing a Greener Development Path in the EAC Integration: Opportunities and Constraints at Hotel Africana on June 27, 2014 starting at 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. This is part of the National CSO Fair activities due 26th and 27th June 2014 under the theme: “Celebrating our East African Citizenship”, The overall objective of this parallel session is to openly brainstorm and discuss the strengths and constraints within the current ENR management regime in view of the EAC integration process and the global sustainable development concerns. Specifically, the session will discuss and share views on: How citizens could contribute to securing a ‘win – win’ scenario in favour of ENR management without jeopardising investment intentions in agriculture, housing and infrastructure (that sometimes interface with ecologically sensitive areas). How citizen monitoring and reporting could be improved in the existing institutions and policies to deliver the same, in view of the EAC integration process and the global sustainable development challenges and responsibilities.
