ABOUT THE COMPANY

The Civil Society Budget Advocacy Group (CSBAG) is a coalition formed in 2004 to bring together CSOs at national and district levels to influence Government decisions on resource mobilization and utilization for equitable and sustainable development. CSBAG was created out of a desire to collectively influence government and effectively participate in setting national budget priorities. It was formed by a group of NGOs led by Uganda Debt Network (UDN), Uganda National NGO Forum, and Forum for Women in Democracy (FOWODE) and Oxfam GB in Uganda. Since 2004, CSOs in Uganda under CSBAG have been engaging in influencing the budget process to ensure that both the local and national budgets incorporate the views of the poor and that they are gender sensitive.
