Strengthening Representative Bodies mid-term report
Mar 17, 2019
The Project’s aim is to address the above challenges by adopting a comprehensive three-pronged strategy for capacity development of local self-governing bodies, addressing simultaneously the interrelated levels of legal and institutional environment, the organisational capacity of CRHs including individual competencies as locally elected representatives. In addition, the Project will assist the Parliament of Mongolia in translating recent laws and policies into concrete actions aimed at creating opportunities for meaningful citizen participation in decision-making, mobilising support of CRHs in awareness raising and monitoring the implementation of recently approved laws. In turn, this would result in the increased effectiveness of laws by translating policy declarations to concrete impacts at the citizens’ level. The Project builds on the foundation laid by the “Support to Participatory Legislative Processes” and “Capacity Strengthening of Local Self-governing Bodies” projects, both implemented by the Parliament Secretariat.
