Multi-stakeholder group and secretariat

The multi-stakeholder approach brings together government, the private sector and civil society to pursue a common goal. This is achieved with the establishment of a Multi-Stakeholder Group (MSG) comprising representatives of each stakeholder. The MSG is responsible for providing leadership and setting policy and standards for the CoST programme. The National Secretariat hosted at Africa Freedom of Information Centre works closely with the MSG and is responsible for the day-to-day management of the CoST programme. Here in Uganda the MSG is composed of nine members three from Government, three from civil society and three from private sector and the Secretariat has three staff.

The current MSG is comprised of the following;
