Stakeholders discuss the impact of digitalization for the public transportation sector in Kampala.

The transportation sector is one of the most important economic drivers for the Ugandan economy. Apart from employing thousands of Ugandans, many other economic sectors also depend on a functioning transportation system. With the recent technical progress, we could witness major breakthroughs in the transportation sector. Because of this, the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (KAS) together with African Cente for Trade and Development (ACTADE) organized a roundtable discussion with important stakeholders to talk about the impact of digitalization on the transportation sector in Uganda.

The Next Generation of Policy Experts Learn Lobbying, Strategic Communication and Networking in Public Policy

Strategic communication, lobbying and networking are some of the fundamental elements in public policy research. Ideally, without these elements, a well-researched and well-written policy paper will remain meaningless if poorly communicated and to the wrong audience. Because of this, we dedicated our third Policy development seminar to this topic.
