Supporting local services and local finances in Tunisia
Strengthening decentralisation and local finances in Tunisia
Tunisian municipalities currently have insufficient capacity to carry out tasks conferred on them as part of decentralisation reforms. They require technical and organisational expertise, sufficiently qualified staff and financial resources to provide effective local services.
The financial situation of Tunisian municipalities has improved. They provide effective, transparent and citizen-oriented services and implement development-focused investment projects.
The project supports national, regional and local actors in building the skills required for collaboration with governmental and non-governmental actors, development planning and effective service delivery. The project operates in three fields of activity:
- Supports cooperation between the various actors and advises on digital transformation processes to promote the provision of decentralised and citizen-oriented services.
- Mobilises municipality revenue and improves the management of revenue and expenditure at community level to encourage investment in local development projects and services.
- Promotes the organisational and technical expertise of sub-national administrations and elected representatives to enable effective service delivery and investment in projects needed in local communities.
