Strengthening Systems of Oversight in East African Parliaments  

Overview

The project aimed at strengthening systems of oversight within East African parliaments, particularly at the level of the portfolio committees. The goal was to have portfolio committees engage more meaningfully on issues within sectors they are responsible for, enhance the effectiveness with which they interrogate departmental reports and use evidence to back their oversight work. The project duration was 2018-2019.

Interventions

The project worked with members of parliament, parliamentary staff, and capacity building implementation partners through various approaches. Activities included:

  • An inception/needs assessment workshop
  • Development of curriculum and training materials based on key issues identified
  • Regional Training workshops
