Burundi- Capacity building of Burundian communes

Beneficiary level: Country
Project status: Ongoing
Duration from: 2018-01-01
Duration to: 2020-12-30
Total budget (US Dollar): $732810
DAC Income classification: Least Developed Countries

The project consists of building capacity of staff of communes of Burundi. The communes are perceived as engine of local development. The decentralization policy adopted by government recognizes the strategic role of communes in the local development. The law which allocates annually resources for communes has voted by Burundian parliament in order to accompany the local development. But the communes do not have capacity to mobilize and plan local resources. They do not have competencies to take public accountancy. On the other hand, the resources transferred are public expenditures. Until now, there is not link between government and communes expenditures. The project aims to strength capacity in local resources mobilization, implementation of public accounting and establish the accountability. The goal of the project is to Strengthening local development. Activities planed are training of communes accountants and communal administrators and the locally elected. It is planed to exchange visits in countries where decentralization is effective.. The project will use short-term experts as well as other pertinent human resources.
