Local Governance Monitoring


SDC’s long-standing experience and involvement in policy dialogue and support to local government is a valuable part of the project context. The overall goal of the programme is to improve the development effectiveness of public policies and resources through the promotion of independent analysis, transparency and an active monitoring by citizens of how local governments apply funds. Outcomes of the phase: (1.) Independent and empirically sound research provokes debate on how existing development policies can be improved. (2.) Monitoring of public procurement, conflict of interest and disciplinary action in cases of corruption have a preventive effect and make resources available for services and infrastructure in the public domain. (3.) Monitoring of local government budgets and social audits result in more and better roads, water and sanitation services, schools and health posts.
