Good Governance and Civil Society / Regional and Economic Development
Though a decentralization process was initiated in Mali in 1992 with substantial donor support, the effects of this policy remain minimal.
Communities lack personnel and administrative capacities; their financial leeway is limited. The population’s need for public administration and basic services is not satisfied; economic development and local democracy cannot fully develop.
The PACT Program addresses these issues with three components:
1. Decentralization consolidation
2. Local administration and basic social services
3. Regional governance and local economic development
AMBERO is strengthening the role and capacity of local authorities and inter-municipal structures to support the use of local economic potential and hereby contributes to PACT’s Component 3 “Regional governance and local economic development”, above all in the areas of regional economic development, land use and development planning, and women and entrepreneurship.
