    (63 Activities) Narrative
    Support the ongoing process of reform of local government in participating countries
    Enhanced legal, policy and regulatory framework on local government in general and on inter-municipal co-operation (IMC) and local finance in particular, which is based on European best practice standards, is developed using CoE tools in at least 3 beneficiary countries;
     
    Survey conducted on the LSG functioning by stakeholders and services users;
    Press and NGOs coverage;
    Statistical data;
    Reports from the branches of the central and local authorities; Assessments of the situation as regards LSG reform by national and international organisations;
    Analysis of relevant legislation;
    Meetings reports and experts reports.
     
    Lower priority given to reform as the territorial integrity of the EaP countries is currently at certain risk;

    The national co-ordinators/partners and other beneficiary institutions may not co-operate and co-ordinate their work sufficiently to produce optimal results from the Project activities and publications


     
    Expected Result 1.1 Consistency of the legislative framework is improved and new by-laws are streamlined in at least three beneficiary countries and targeted recommendations are developed for the joint use
    Recommendations on improved provision of services at local/regional level are prepared and submitted to the national authorities in at least 3 beneficiary countries, taking into account efficiency, sustainability and cost-effectiveness, including through improved IMC;
    Representatives of the central and local authorities from the beneficiary countries obtain an in-depth understanding of various steps relevant to improved IMC mechanisms (IMC ladder) and use the knowledge in their daily work;
    Recommendations for municipal territorial consolidation (including IMC) are formulated to at least 3 beneficiary countries;
    New IMC arrangements are created in at least 2 countries.

    Statistical data;
    Reports from the branches of the central and local authorities; Assessments of the situation as regards LSG reform by national and international organisations;
    Analysis of relevant legislation;
    Meetings reports and experts reports.
     
    Halted development of LSG due to multiple actors’ specific interests and lack of political commitment;
    While the interest in the Project’s activities should be strong, there is a risk of insufficient readiness of the participants to take the new methods on board and further implement them
    Expected Result 1.2 European standard local finance benchmarking tool is further developed and the adapted domestic versions are available
    Concrete recommendations on structured benchmarking and bench-learning approaches for all stakeholders, including central and local authorities themselves, are developed at the regional level, namely, as concerns local finance, as well as European standards of local finance benchmarking;
    At least 12 municipalities from 4 countries improve their financial management in the light of on expert appraisals based on nationally adapted versions of the Local Finance Benchmarking
