Hi Tonny

This looks good and weldone for being behind the movers of it. Its my beleif that talking Development, governance and transparency is sometimes like chasing  hot air when we continously fail to position conflict resolution and prevention before or with the fomer 3 areas.

When I look at even the smallest of projects in a household do fail just becuase people cannot resolve a difference in thinking and perception on an issue. The cost is always the project and the likely invisible distant beneficiaries......the poor and vulnerable children, women and the old.


Dr TK, Great to hear from you through PCDN. I've been wondering whether you're now operating a sort of 'brief-case organisation' as reality presents itself in northern Uganda.

Anyhow, did you receive my previous correspondence in this regard? Looking forward to getting something written for this forthcoming publication.

Best of luck,


I really grateful for the post I will be part of the contributor

Dr Tony, first of all I would like to appreciate you and this mega project you are handling. Kudos. We are with you.
