Project Background


In Lebanon, local governance is regarded from the sole regional institutions which are municipalities. In the context of the socio-economic and humanitarian crises which have been affecting Lebanon, it was clear that municipalities were the first authorities managing and controlling these crises locally.

This showed the necessity to advocate for strengthening municipalities in order for them to use their resources and operate efficiently. This will lead to improved public service delivery. This means that Lebanon should ensure municipalities’ sustainability and good governance while taking geographical, economic, social, environmental, financial complexities into account.

Therefore, NAHNOO is working on several studies in this field and will be presenting solid recommendations laying out the roadmap for an updated and sustainable strategy for an improved municipal work in Lebanon. The NGO will promote these recommendations through communication actions to launch an awareness campaign.
