The Local Government Accountability and Performance (LGAP) activity
To ensure more citizens benefit from the effects of decentralization, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) has designed the Local Government Accountability and Performance (LGAP) activity. LGAP will work across eight districts to improve local government performance and transparency, increase citizen engagement, and strengthen the enabling environment for decentralization in Malawi. DAI is taking an integrated systems approach that includes providing local government employees with the tools and skills to improve the quality of service, as well as incentivizing collaboration among local government institutions. Initiatives will be district-led, reinforcing ownership and accountability by local stakeholders and improving their capacity to sustain progress.
