This call for proposals aims to enhance CSOs’ and LAs’ contributions to governance and development processes in Pakistan.

Priorities and funded actions:

– To strengthen Pakistani local governments enabling them to effectively perform their roles as actors of local governance and development through a territorial, multi-stakeholder approach

– Promotion of more participative, accountable, responsive and inclusive governmental development planning, budgeting, and implementation processes at local, sub-national, and national levels  
– Enhanced local governments-led engagement with CSOs and communities for effective and pro-poor development planning, budgeting, and service delivery

Among financed actions

– Establish mechanisms to engage local governments in dialogue with sub-national and national authorities, citizens and other relevant stakeholders (multi-level governance approach), with emphasis on transparent decision-making at local levels;
– Enhance capacity of local governments (in line with their mandate) to effectively plan and deliver public services, notably social services, and to take measures to promote inclusive and sustainable growth;
