Social Inclusion for Development

Summary of the project

This project aims to address the knowledge gap among citizens, particularly young people, regarding local institutions and the 2014 Administrative-Territorial Reform. Implemented for seven years, the Reform aimed to improve local governance and services but lacked consolidation. Through legal education and awareness initiatives, the project seeks to provide citizens with a better understanding of local institutions and their functions, thereby increasing their participation in decision-making processes and their contribution to urban development.
