VNG International provides backstopping mainly to the PAGUDEL 2 (Programme d'Appui à la Gouvernance Urbaine Démocratique et au Développement Économique Local en Tunisie) project, which is carried out by CILG with financial support of DANIDA.

The PAGUDEL 2 project has as general objective to consolidate democratic local governance enabling local economic development promoting job creation specifically for women and youth.

The specific objectives of the PAGUDEL 2 project are:

1. To support local and national government in implementing decentralisation and democratic local governance
2. Capacity strengthening of local governments in matters related to municipal management and democratic local governance and decentralisation

The expected results of the VNG International backstopping are:
(i) Improved planning and reporting to DANIDA - the financing organisation
(ii) A more result-oriented approach taken by the CILG team
(iii) Improved monitoring and evaluation system
