Democratic Governance Facility

Kampala, Uganda
Joined December 2016

The overall goal of the DGF is to contribute to equitable growth, poverty eradication, rule of law and long term stability in Uganda.

Presence in: Uganda
Focus: Governance

The Democratic Governance Facility (DGF) was established by Austria, Denmark, Ireland, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, the United Kingdom and the European Union. DGF supports state and non state partners to strengthen democratisation, protect human rights, improve access to justice and enhance accountability in Uganda.

DGF’s work is built upon the principles and values enshrined in Uganda’s 1995 Constitution and reiterated in its current National Development Plan.  It is guided by a belief that sustainable development is best achieved through constructive engagement by Ugandan citizens with the state at national and sub-national levels.  The facility does not implement activities directly, but works with a diverse array of national, regional and district-based partners.  It promotes the development of Uganda’s centres of excellence in specific areas related to democratic governance and supports the efforts of Ugandan citizens to ensure peace, prosperity and justice for all.
