Angola: Better Monitoring for Improving Local Service Delivery

Strenghtening the capacities of local officials to monitor will support the process of Angolan decentralization.

  • service delivery,
  • local development plans,
  • data management,
  • mobilization of local resources and
  • participation in local decision making.
Statistics offices and information centres in 15 municipalities will be targeted.
