Public Dialogues

The Uganda Development Policy Management Forum (UDMF) was established in 2003 with support from Development Policy Management Forum (DPMF), based in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, in order to provide various stakeholders in the country with opportunity to make a positive and informed contribution to the National Policy Development and Implementation process.   UDPMF’ vision is to be a leading independent think tank for analyzing policy development and implementation issues of relevance to Uganda and the great Lakes region in general.  Its mission is to positively influence policy development and management in Uganda.
