BULQIZE, ALBANIA     USAID’s Planning and Local Governance Project held a two-day workshop in Bulqiza with 25 high school students to support the creation of the Bulqiza Youth Board. The youth board was identified by the Mayor of Bulqiza, Mr. Melaim Damzi, as an opportunity to build local capacities for youth leadership, youth participation in decision-making, and community development. The creation of municipal youth boards can create multigenerational dialogue and empower Albania’s young population.

Since 2012, USAID’s Planning and Local Governance Project has partnered with Albania’s national government as well as 15 municipalities to build bipartisan consensus and effective policies and legislation on decentralized local governance, improve service delivery, and share best practices on municipal governance.
