Capacity Building for Democratic Local Governance - Main Users / Purpose
|Governmental and non-governmental development agencies, line ministries in charge of decentralisation reforms, along with training institutions.|
Good local governance builds on institutions, mechanisms and processes, through which citizens and their groups can voice their needs and interests, perform their stipulated rights and responsibilities. It requires local government institutions equipped with sufficient authority and resources capable to perform their functions in a responsive and accountable manner. It demands an active civil society able to identify and channel their concerns to their elected representatives.
