Increase accountability of local government institutions in northern part of Kosovo

Status: Finished

Donor: British Embassy Pristina

Description: The project aims to increase the accountability of the local governments in four northern Kosovo municipalities: North Mitrovica, Zvecan, Zubin Potok and Leposavic through development of modalities and mechanisms for increased participation of citizens groups in local decision making and consultation process.

The activities predicted by this project are designed to create stronger links between informal citizens’ groups and local governing (municipal) authorities thus increasing the level of transparency and accountability at the local level.

This goal will be achieved through formation of a series of informal groups (including those comprised of representatives of vulnerable social groups) of citizens who will articulate and present their concerns to their elected officials. This will not only serve to strengthen their role in the decision making process but will also invariably lead to a greater degree of accountability in the overall decision making process at the local level.
