How can government become more responsive to the voices of the people and to meet service needs for local communities? Three Ugandans will discuss ways to 'mobilize democracy' on behalf of local communities. Dr. Arthur Bainomugisha is Executive Director of the Advocates Coalition for Development and Environment (ACODE), an interdisciplinary, independent public policy research and advocacy think tank in Kampala, Uganda, with operations in the Eastern and Southern Africa sub-regions (http://www.acode-u.org/). He will be joined by Ms Lillian Muyomba-Tamale, Research Fellow and Project Manager at ACODE, and Gertrude Gamwera, Secretary General (President) of the Uganda Local Government Association, Kampala, Uganda (http://www.ulga.org).
