A CIVIL SOCIETY POSITION PAPER
This position paper is primarily a result of two multi-stakeholder convenings of the Civil Society Organizations, on how to bridge the gender digital gap in Uganda. It brings forward the argument that access alone is not enough; women need agency and capacity to leverage access. The paper thus highlights the increasing significance of making assessments of the gender digital gap in Uganda and develop meaningful indicators that contribute to the design and implementation of effective policies that drive adoption. It highlights the need for effective promotion of women's digital adoption not only from the government but also from the private sector and civil society in order to lead the digital adoption of best practices for women in Uganda. In other words, this paper reflects the position of civil society on the smart policy options necessary in closing the gender digital gap in Uganda.
