Description

The overall objective of the project was to enable the Government of North Macedonia to start concrete competence transfer from central government to municipalities. Assistance was given to the Ministry of Local Self Government (MoLSG) to carry out its responsibilities as a coordinator of the Government's decentralization programme and to enhance the operational capabilities of line ministries and municipalities in competence transfer, in line with the SAA, the Ohrid Framework Agreement and The European Partnership.
More specifically the project aimed at:

  • the strengthening of the administrative capacities to supervise and facilitate the decentralization process, including central level, in particular the MoLSG, as well as the other line ministries in their own areas of competence;
  • the ensuring of a smooth and coordinated transfer of competencies especially in the priority fields;
  • the improvement of the monitoring and evaluation capacity of the central government.

The MoLSG lead the decentralization reform and coordinated the sectoral competence transfer, while the Central Government monitored the reform and supervised the overall performance.
