USAID PROJECT FOR TRANSPARENT GOVERNANCE (2009-2012)

The Project develops mechanisms for increasing transparency, accountability and responsibility of local government in Macedonia, encouraging greater participation of citizens and local business community in the decision-making process in local government and the exchange of best practices and experiences among municipalities in the country, and in the region.

Project activities contribute in reducing the level of corruption in the local communities and in enhance the confidence of citizens and business representatives in local authorities.

 The project covers 13 municipalities of Eastern and Western Macedonia and Skopje region. Once detected weaknesses by depth research on current practices in municipalities, we prepare a series of recommendations to take specific measures to improve the operation and exchanging of best practices between the municipalities. The project is implemented in partnership with NGO Info-center of Skopje and the Center for Civil Communications - Skopje, and is financially supported by USAID.
