Our Mandate

To strengthen coordination and networking of LASPs, harmonisation and standardisation of legal aid service provision by the different service providers, lobbying and advocacy to facilitate a favourable legal and policy environment.

Civic Response on Environment and Development (CRED).

Civic Response on Environment and Development (CRED) is a non-partisan, not-for profit, public interest oriented policy research and advocacy organization registered under Ugandan laws and based in Kampala-Uganda.

CRED addresses the disconnect between policy documents and national level interventions with the reality in communities. We achieve this by implementing a range of activities with the view of empowering and facilitating the local people to demand for reforms and rule of law.

Vision: An empowered community that promotes equitable utilization and sustainable governance of natural resources for poverty alleviation and social transformation.

Mission: To implement  research and advocacy initiatives that empower local communities to demand for transparency, accountability and participation in decision making.


  1. Relevant and timely policy research across the organization’s programmatic strands
  2. Advocacy that fosters the utilization and implementation of CRED research and novel ideas in policy formulation and implementation
  3. Capacity building initiatives and provision of legal advise to empower citizens to demand accountability and good governance in public affairs
  4. Build and strengthen CRED as a relevant and credible institution working with and for communities at all levels.
