ICCO Cooperation consortium members have the long term objective to decrease inequality and injustice in society in order to create conditions for just economic, social and political development. In strategic partnership with the Dutch ministry of foreign affairs, the ICCO consortium will implement a five-year program titled ‘Convening &Convincing’. In Uganda, the program will be implemented based on three pathways:

  1. Creating space for civil society organization
  2. Realizing inclusive and sustainable food systems
  3. Small-producers empowerment and access to markets

The program will be implemented in eleven developing countries. These country programs will provide input for policy dialogue in the Netherlands and the European Union. In the East African region, the program will be implemented in Kenya, Uganda and Ethiopia. For Uganda ICCO Consortium members; Tear, Edukans, KIA, Red een Kind, Light for the World,Woord en Daad and Wilde Ganzen and ICCO itself will contribute to the country program
