USAID programs empower Malians to play an important role at the local level of a decentralized government system. The approach involves developing partnerships with a range of actors—locally elected authorities, civil society, and the private sector—to find solutions to development issues.
We strengthen the capacity of elected communal leaders to be effective in providing basic services to their constituencies. We provide technical assistance in financial management and budget preparations to improve accountability and transparency in the commune management system. We also train civil society organizations (with a focus on women and youth) in management, advocacy, and civic education so they can contribute to and monitor the work of elected leaders and commune council members.
