Partnership Arrangements

Development Partner Partnership

JLOS SIP III will be financed by the Government of Uganda with contributions from development partners, through basket and bilateral arrangements. At the time of design of the JLOS SIP III development partners who have committed to support the implementation of the Plan include the Netherlands, Sweden and Ireland. other JLOS development partners who have financed the sector either through general budget support or bilateral arrangements include Britian, Norway, the European Union, United States of America, UNICEF, Denmark, UN Women, Austria, German and UNDP among others. This support has been in accordance with the Government of Uganda- Donor Partnership principles currently under revision. The design of JLOS SIP III is flexible to allow other development partners to join at any stage of implementation. The coordination of financial support, technical knowledge and international experience between development partners will continue to be done under the JLOS Development Partner Group; a coordination that has delivered substantial benefits to the program in SIP 1 and SIP II.

Non State Actor Partnership

Given the recommendations of the JLOS MTE, especially in the area of partnerships, the third arm of partners in the JLOS SIP III design are the people of Uganda represented through private sector and non governmental organizations. The MTE noted that the voice and participation of this arm of JLOS were underdeveloped and required affirmative action to bring it to par with the role played by development partners and the Government of Uganda representatives. Strong JLOS-NSA partnerships will therefore be developed under JLOS SIP III to root JLOS reforms in the communities and among the population of Uganda. Some of the key partners include JLOS knowledge and support service providers; service delivery NGOS and Faith based organizations; private sector groups, other line Ministries and parastatals and other players deriving/rendering value from the Justice, Law and Order system.

Civil Society Organisations

Memorandum of Understanding shall be developed between the Sector and key civil society organizations. The MoUs shall elaborate the Rules of Engagement and how these groups shall be brought in or exit the Sector.

Cross-Sectoral Partnerships

Because the JLOS intentions are interlinked with a number of services delivered by other sectors, JLOS will participate in cross sectoral knowledge sharing and practice enhancement particularly with the Governance Sector (accountability); security sector (human rights and access to justice); health sector( access to justice); education sector (access to justice; human rights and accountability) and decentralization sector(justice for children matters and local council courts); land sector (land matters) etc

Regional and International Partnerships

Linkages will be made to the regional and continental level to share knowledge and raise capacities of staff and stakeholders involved in Justice, Law and Order reforms. These efforts will strengthen a regional and continent-wide community of practice to disseminate experience on what works where and why.
