Senegal - Cities Modernisation Programme – Phase 1 (Promovilles-1) - Appraisal Report


The Government of Senegal, cognizant of the fact that economic and social development starts with the greater involvement of all communities, intends to boost governance in the country through new territorial and institutional reform,referred to as "Decentralisation Act 3",that should address the difficulties obstructing the functioning of local government bodies (LGBs). Such difficulties relate to development financing mechanisms between the State and LGBs; the availability of financial resources;the mismatch between resources and powers transferred to LGBs and the human and technical resource problems faced by these government bodies when addressing town planning needs and the establishment of equipment and infrastructure crucial to economic and social development.
