Output 3: Strengthened national capacity for effective policy review, monitoring, lesson learning and capacity development of LGIs for enhanced Local Governance
This output is common to the UZGP project and its partner project Union Parishad Governance Project (UPGP). It includes support to the development of national policies and systems including rules and regulation which will enable implementation of the Upazila Parishad Act. The project will also assist the government to prepare and operationalize manuals including those for planning, human resources and administration. This Output targets the capacity for policy development and national systems supporting local governance comprising both the LG training institutions, technical support and monitoring by the DLG, and DDLGs at divisional and district levels and relevant sectoral entities. Most of the activities of output 1 and 2 will be delivered through these national policies and systems rather than independent project mechanisms. Output 3 will mainstream Gender equity throughout the policies and institutional tools it will develop and contribute to.
National coverage will be promoted through working with the offices of the LGD offices of (Director(LG), and Deputy Director (LG) located at the Divisional/Deputy Commissioners’ offices, and the additional main elements of the national framework supporting LGs. Capacity support will be delivered through the existing training institutions and experienced non-state actors; professional bodies primarily responsible for developing the individual capacity of the chairs, vice-chairs, members and staff of local government. Output 3 outlines in more detail how the program will contribute to the institutionalizing of an innovative and demand-driven approach to capacity building which moves beyond the classroom and responds directly to the needs of local government actors.
Additionally, the program funded capacity building, including aspects of institutional trainings, backstopping and the peer-to-peer horizontal learning, will be delivered to all. Evidence from the existing peer-to-peer learning initiatives by WSP with the UPs suggests that once good practices are identified, non-participating UPs are quick to learn and adopt such practices leading to a wider take-up and embedding of good practice across a broad geographical area. The LGD, concern officials at Divisional and Deputy Commissioner’s offices and UNO will be taken on board along with some specialized academic organizations such as BARD, RDA , NILG, BRDTI (Sylhet), RPATC, BIAM and other institutions
