Decentralization draft law

10 Apr 2014

“The Ministry of Interior and Municipalities (MOIM) signed an agreement with UNDP in 2010 to organize a national consultation process on decentralization reform. This Consultation Process was conducted by the Common Space Initiative and was reflected in a report submitted to the MOIM in July 2012.


During the period of August 2012-October 2013, CSI provided technical support to the Special Experts Committee on Decentralization in charge of drafting the new decentralization law. On 2 April 2014, the President of the Republic launched this final Committee’s report and the draft law on decentralization at the Presidential palace in Baabda.  This project was funded by the Italian Cooperation and the British Embassy.”
