Between January and April 2012, CIPESA conducted two studies on open governance in Uganda with APC’s Action Research Network. These studies were intended to form the basis of awareness-raising, advocacy and network building activities. The completed work will serve as a springboard for future activities such as advocating for open governance by building a network of actors to raise awareness and to make use of open government data (OGD). Network building activities will also reinforce advocacy work to make government data open to the public. The final of three, this third report registers the process of the open governance network building achieved during the research process in Uganda. It describes advocacy and awareness raising developed through meetings and interviews with more than 30 individuals, the use of mailing lists and social media to create awareness about open governance, dissemination and advocacy for OGD and network development with key organisations.
