Municipal Environmental and Economic Governance (MEG)

The project aims to improve municipal development management systems and services in the environmental and economic sectors.

The Project will provide for better local services for the citizens, enhanced accountability and trust between local authorities, citizens and businesses, as well as support to capital investments to unlock sustainable economic growth and job creation. Particular attention will be paid to improving living conditions of vulnerable groups.

To support and sustain changes introduced at the local level, the MEG project will encourage improvements in the regulatory framework, aligned with relevant EU standards, and towards decentralized and improved service delivery.

Approximately 700,000 citizens, including 40,000 socially excluded, will benefit from the improved local services, employment opportunities or improved business environment.

Flagship results achieved thus far include:
