Interessenvertreter diskutieren die Auswirkungen der Digitalisierung für den öffentlichen Verkehr in Kampala.

Der Transportsektor ist einer der wichtigsten ökonomischen Faktoren in der Wirtschaft Ugandas. Abgesehen davon, dass der Sektor tausenden Ugandern als Arbeitgeber dient, sind viele andere ökonomische Sektoren ebenfalls abhängig von einem funktionierenden Transportsystem. Mit dem jüngsten technischen Fortschritt, können wir wesentliche Durchbrüche bezeugen. Aus diesem Grund hat die Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS) zusammen mit dem African Center for Trade and Development (ACTADE) eine Diskussionsrunde mit wichtigen Interessenvertretern organisiert.

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.
