Project Description

According to bank documents, the program objective is (i) to improve the institutional performance of participating municipal governments and (ii) to strengthen inter-municipal coordination for local service delivery in selected urban agglomerations.

The proposed World Bank-financed Program is expected to contribute substantively to the attainment of key results identified in the Government program. By combining support for increased and improved allocation of government transfers to LGs, with institutional mechanisms to enhance the performance of LGs in efficiently and effectively managing public resources in a participatory manner, and incentivizing and supporting the inter-municipal collaboration, the Program will contribute to deepening the process of fiscal and administrative decentralization in Morocco.
