The new World Bank “Inclusion Matters” report will be launched tomorrow at Sheraton hotel here in Kampala, under the “Foundation for Shared Prosperity” theme. This is one of the most comprehensive reviews of social inclusion that shows how excluded groups exist in all countries.
It also aims at showing that change towards social inclusion is possible and attainable with concerted policy efforts.
This can happen with the help of boundaries around an abstract concept and providing a framework for diverse audiences engaged in policy action.
This event will mark the first launch of the report in Africa, and the first in a World Bank client country. It will be chaired by Mr. Philippe Dongier, World Bank Country Director for Tanzania, Uganda and Burundi and Mr. Ahmadou Moustapha Ndiaye, Country Manager World Bank Uganda Country Office.
Other guest include Hon. Busingye Mary Karooro Okurut, Minister of Gender, Labour and Social Development, Mr. Charles Ocici, Executive Director, Enterprise Uganda, Mr. Chris Mugga-Nsubuga, Consultant, World Bank, Mr. Pius Bigirimana, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development, Mr. Chris Musiime, Action Aid – Social Inclusion, Dr. Consolata Kabonesa, Dean School of Women and Gender Studies, Rt Rev.
