UNNGOF deliberately works with a solution focused approach that is informed by an analysis of the future that citizens want. UNNGOF aims to create solutions in two intervention areas, a) Civil Society Strengthening and b) Influencing Development Policy and practice. Two support functions of Results, Learning and Communication and Finance and Corporate Services complement these key intervention areas.


The policy advocacy and engagement component seeks to build on the core functions and experience of coordinating civil society to engage in collective policy advocacy and engagements in key policy processes, emphasising the value in ‘bringing together’ NGOs to participate in multi-stakeholder and multi-sectoral policy processes. The objective is to coordinate collective policy engagements by NGOs on policy issues of interest to NGOs, and relevant to Uganda’s development, as well as for long-perspective planning. Ultimately, the work under Policy Advocacy and Engagement is geared towards the development of citizen responsive policies and practices for the well-being of citizens and their rights.
