The wider objective of the project is to provide support to twenty-five selected municipalities in the decentralisation and communal development plan.

The specific objectives are as follows: Firstly, to provide individual support to the twenty-five selected municipalities according to their existing capacities and needs, with the additional goal of integrating climate change in their annual planning and its implementation. Secondly, to provide support to the training center for municipal administration (CeFAL).

The expected results of the project are:
(i) the municipal administration functions autonomously and efficiently,
(ii) the CeFAL offers a training programme adapted to the local needs,
(iii) municipalities improve their services due to sharing knowledge and learnings with other municipalities,
(iv) capacities of professionals of CeFAL and of municipalaties are improved,
(v) national structures are actively linked to the service delivery of municipalities, and
(vi) cooperation leads to better results and more efficacy.

These results ultimately lead to a sustainable improvement of service delivery which responds to the needs of the population and is provided by municipalities.
