Municipality Budget Development
African country had recently built up its municipality system, with their obligations, revenue generation abilities and central governmental transfers. However, daily operation differed much from guidelines and the law.
External parties requested an assessment across the top 20 municipalities, mapping their revenue sources, costs, budgeting processes and financial checks and balances, both from the city councils’ and the communities’ perspectives.
After 120 in-person interviews, through legal documentation assessment and on-the ground anecdotes, we created a city-specific and an overall overview on current performance and suggestions for improvements.
In collaboration with Baltic Sea Cluster Development Centre, Voluntās Policy Advisory (Voluntās) is currently involved in the “COVID19-Communities Response and Resilience” project targeting themes “Citizen engagement/community response” as well as “The Economic of Health Service Delivery”.
To support effective COVID-19 crisis communication and community outreach by the Libyan Ministry of Health and the National Centre for Disease Control, Voluntās Policy Advisory supported UNICEF in the development and implementation of a nationwide survey-based behavioral assessment in Libya.
On December 9, Voluntās presented the outcomes of a recent feasibility study for the establishment of a Labour Market Information System (LMIS) in Libya to Libyan government and private sector stakeholders.
