JLOS Launches the Third Strategic Investment Plan (SIP III)
MUNYONYO - The Justice, Law and Order Sector (JLOS) on March 20, 2012 launched the Third Strategic Investment Plan (SIP III) 2012-2017, during the opening ceremony of the 6th National JLOS Forum that took place at Speke Resort, Munyonyo in Kampala. SIP III builds upon the Sector wide approach adopted by the Government of Uganda in 1999. SIPIII shall over the next 5 years seek to deepen the ongoing interventions and also broaden sector services started under the first (SIP I) and second (SIP II) strategic investment plans through well targeted interventions aimed at strengthening the legal, policy and regulatory framework; enhancing access to JLOS services with an emphasis accorded to the vulnerable groups; and mainstreaming human rights and accountability in JLOS service delivery.
While launching the 5-year investment plan during the colorful event, the chief guest the Rt. Honorable Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga applauded the sector for coming up with a pro people strategy that shall provide a platform upon which JLOS institutions and all stakeholders shall harness their five year programs, strategies and activities.
JLOS SIP III strategic focus in the next five years is to enhance the performance of its institutions to deliver three results: a strong policy, legal and regulatory framework for its operations, national economic growth, employment and prosperity; improved access to JLOS services for all particularly the vulnerable and enhanced human rights observance and institutional accountability in service delivery.
JLOS SIP III will be supported by the Government of Uganda and Development Partners including Ireland, Netherlands, Norway, Denmark and United Nations agencies.
