The Africa Institute for Energy Governance
Click Name to read profile
The Africa Institute for Energy Governance (AFIEGO) is an independent policy research and advocacy NGO that specialises in public energy policy. It is designed primarily to bring energy and environmental governance issues into the public domain and bridge the gap between public energy policy research, policy advocacy, policy implementation and enforcement.
AFIEGO currently runs three programmes: an Extractives Industries Governance Programme, an Electricity Democracy Programme and a Renewable Energy Programme.
AFIEGO’s main focus continues to be provision of advocacy for improvement of policies and supporting the involvement of communities in the national agenda of the energy sector. Work done by AFIEGO has perceptibly enhanced the government’s engagement with civil society in matters of energy and has made a positive contribution towards improvement of the energy sector. This ultimately helps to promote the implementation of the access to rights framework.
In the last three years, under the Extractives Governance Programme, AFIEGO has emerged as a leading organisation in matters to do with research and advocacy regarding Uganda’s nascent oil industry.
Capacity-building of parliamentarians and provision of information through community empowerment projects has been AFIEGO’s principal strategy to influence transparency and accountability in the sector.
The AFIEGO offices are situated at Plot 90, Kanjokya Street in Kanjyokya Street, Kamwokya, Kampala.
