Local Integrated Development (LID)

LID directly contributed to improvements in the standard of living for more than 100,000 people in the country, worked with domestic authorities to put into place mechanisms and resources needed to drive social and economic development.

The Project worked through three interconnected pillars implemented over a three-year period:

  1. Better governments for better governance
  2. Improving services through better infrastructure
  3. Creating more income opportunities

Across all of its pillars, the Project prioritized assistance to the most vulnerable, including returnees, internally displaced persons, unemployed women, elderly, Roma, people with disabilities and long-term unemployed. The Project was implemented in 21 partner cities and municipalities selected through a public and transparent process, prioritizing localities that are home to large returnee population and were affected by the May 2014 floods.
