Eastern Africa Greens Federation Secretariat Established in Kampala,Uganda

The East Africa Greens Federation congress which brought together leaders and representatives of Eastern African Green parties from Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya and Burundi who met 8th – 9th November 2013 in Kigali Rwanda, resolved that the headquarters of the EAGF will be based in Kampala Uganda. The EAGF headquarters have been established on National Insurance Corporation Building (NIC), Plot 4 Pilkington Road, Kampala Uganda.

EAGF is a membership of Green Political Parties and Movements in Eastern Africa working in a coalition to achieve the following objectives:

  • To promote and popularize the green ideology;
  • To mainstream green principles and values into government’s political and economic policies as well as those of the regional political communities;
  • To monitor and evaluate the progress on international commitments on environmental related issues;
  • To influence, encourage and assist communities within Eastern Africa to sustainably manage their natural resources;
  • To promote unity, reconciliation, cooperation, diversity and gender equality among Eastern African people;
  • To support and defend the member green parties.

I would like to call upon individuals from the Eastern African countries to join the EAGF and embrace the green ideology.
