The Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights Coalition (ESCR)

The Coalition for the freedom of Information (COFI)

The coalition on the freedom of information was formed in 2003 by a group of Civil Society Organizations to influence the quality of legislation on Access to Information when the Act was still a Bill. After the passing of the Act in 2005, the Coalition aggressively engaged Government and other stakeholders to popularize, and advocate for the operationalization of the Act. This has been through coalition strengthening, organizing conferences and workshops, regional training workshops, media advocacy, research and documentation, production of Information, Education and Communication materials, public interest litigation, engaging in study tours to compare with other countries that have enacted and utilized the access to information law, commemorating the right to know day, and publicity among others.

The realization of the right to housing contributes to the economic, social and cultural rights that can be traced in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of 1948; the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, 1966; the African Charter on Human and People’s Rights (1986); and in the Treaty for the Establishment of the East African Community, 1999 at the regional Level, all of which, Uganda is a signatory.

The housing sector has in the past faced challenges some of which include: lack of specific and clear Policy, legal and institutional framework on housing development. Read more
