The next phase of JPLG will focus on creating an enabling environment for improved service delivery and greater stability, through improved legal, policy and system frameworks – building the knowledge of those working in and with local governments. Greater attention will be given to the inclusion of the marginalized and women. The programme aims to achieve three outcomes: the first, in policy and legal frameworks; the second, on enhanced capacities; the third, on more inclusive local governance.
Outcome 1: Policy, legal and regulatory frameworks on local governance finalized
Outcome 2: Local governments’ have the capacity to deliver equitable and sustainable services, promote economic development and peace.
Outcome 3: Local governments demonstrate improved engagement of citizens, with an emphasis on women and marginalized groups
