Initiative Description

We work to build citizen capacity to use data for better engagement with government and other stakeholders. We do this to ensure better resource allocation and better development outcomes in achieving Global Goals such as the Sustainable Development Goals, and other local and national goals, mainly The Vision 2030, which is being implemented through successive five-year medium term plans. The Third Medium Term Plan (MTP III) 2018-2022 is the current plan being implemented at the local level.Global Goals for Local Impact (GGLI) Programme:The Global Goals is an initiative that aims to domesticate the SDGs and demonstrate to the local citizens that the SDGs, much as they were formulated and discussed by global leaders are meant to drive development at a very local level.
