Social Watch Report 2014

DENIVA is the focal point for the Social Watch Report Uganda. Every year the Social Watch national coalitions report on their countries’ progress or regression towards the internationally agreed goals.

Social Watch is an international network of citizens’ organizations in the struggle to eradicate poverty and the causes of poverty, to end all forms of discrimination and racism, to ensure an equitable distribution of wealth and the realization of human rights. Social Watch holds governments, the UN system and international organizations accountable for the fulfilment of national, regional and international commitments to eradicate poverty. Today the Social Watch network has active coalitions of over 1,000 organizations in 80 countries.
