Lobbying, Advocacy & Representation

Uganda National Association of Building and Civil Engineering Contractors (UNABCEC) represents more than 350 firms including Uganda’s leading construction, electrical and mechanical contractors, sub-contractors, suppliers and manufacturers. Regarded as the “voice” of the construction industry, UNABCEC is one of the most visible organizations in Uganda actively advocating for the industry

From activities affecting contractors’ participation in public procurement to policy and legal matters affecting the sector, UNABCEC regularly lobbies Government on behalf of her members to ensure fair and transparent practices in the construction business. Be active in these efforts or at least be kept apprised of what is being done on your behalf.

Over 300+ papers were submitted to policy makers in 2020.
