Guidance and systemization of experiences

Local Development plays an important role in the development of local economies, enhancing jobs and livelihoods creation as well as in the provision of basic services to the population, all having a significant impact on achieving the SDGs and fostering communities’ well-being. The search for the most appropriate means of localizing the SDGs is critical to the successful implementation and optimization of Agenda 2063 and the 2030 Agenda in Africa. Drawing from research on the state of local governance in Central Africa, the report establishes the baselines, highlight best practices, identify key challenges and propose strategies and policy options under the 4 following areas : (1) Decentralization and Local Governance Legal and Policy Framework; (2) Local Finances and Inclusive Services Deliver; (3) Local Economic Development and (4) Capacity Building. For each section, special considerations and recommendations for Fragile and Conflict-Affected States have been developed.
