Barriers To Innovation In Uganda
As facts have it, creating, promoting and advancing innovations in Africa has been and still continues to be, a persisting challenge that however, needs to be overcome sooner than later. It is worth remembering that today; Africa lags behind in almost all sectors of development despite the glaring fact that it is a continent which is endowed with huge amounts of natural resources. For example, Africa is well known for its vast riches in biodiversity (both flora and fauna), human-friendly climate and, huge deposits of minerals apart from the fact that the continent covers 60% of the worlds arable land.
On the other hand however, evidence from Developed and Emerging Economies indicates that to be effective, key development mechanisms have to go through the thorough processes of formulation, implementation and, advancement whereby advancement implies rigorous reviews and updates of whatever mechanism is developed and utilized. Unfortunately, these processes hardly exist within development practices in Africa as well as in other developing societies. Instead, most innovative initiatives are mentioned and given one-off recognition during passing events.
On its part therefore, the LOG`EL Project has committed itself to continuously participate in the key, diverse innovative processes aimed to serve the needs and interests of society and, that these processes are time-tested, for purposes of sustainability so as to benefit contemporary society and those that come after.
To fully ensure that the above stated commitment is accomplished, the LOG`EL Project strongly believes in and upholds the steadfast attachment to measures which develop and sustain the holistic processes of mechanism formulation, implementation and advancement. In our operating culture, we reckon that the twin factors of completion and accomplishment stand out to guarantee the initiation, development and delivery of innovative goods, services and processes.
