 EMLI CSO-Government Dialogue Project 

The Independent Evaluation Office of the GEF (IEO) evaluated the GEF CSO Network for the period 2014-2016 concluding, inter alia, network's activities were distant from Country level where GEF projects make their mark and from where the majority of Network CSOs operate. The Evaluation recommended that the GEF CSO Network should continue to build itself as a mechanism for strengthening civil society participation in the GEF at global, regional and national levels, paying particular attention to; membership development, capacity building and value-added working relationships across the GEF partnership. In Line with the GEF 6 Programming Direction, SGP intends to build value beyond grant making by improving the working relation between CSOs and Government through reinforcing support mechanisms and platforms.

With financial support to a tune of USD 30,000 from GEF-SGP and UNDP, EMLI in collaboration with the Ministry of Water and Envionment seek to establish CSO-Government dialogue plaform and strengthen support mechanism of the SGP.

The initiative intends to: Strengthen institutional and technical capacity of the GEF CSO Network in Uganda; Catalyze Multilateral Environmental Agreements (MEAs) implementation and integration into national decision making frameworks; and Foster innovative partnerships with private sector in the realization of the global environmental benefits.
