Societies that want to make a difference, both to their own lives and to the communities in which they live are moving towards a systematic structure of local government.
A functioning local government must serve the interests of the people
and safeguard their rights. Local governments need to create an enabling environment for citizen participation in the welfare of the community.
Since 2000, we have promoted a local government design based on five fundamentals:
- Devolution of political power, decentralization of administrative authority,
- Less or no concentration of management functions,
- Diffusion of the power-authority nexus,
- Distribution of resources to the district level
