The Engagement Facility for supporting the implementation of a new decentralisation package and prepare the ground for the localisation of the SDGs

UNDP Mozambique Country Office has been supporting the decentralisation process and strengthening local government capacity for participative and inclusive planning and equitable local development for over 20 years, and with notable success.

The current phase of support has come to an end in 2018 and the design of a new phase is currently under discussion with Government. However, the new phase is only likely to be finalised in 2019 and will be aligned with the mandate of the new administration that will be elected and hold office for the period 2020-24.

The Engagement Facility will be used to provide bridging finance to support the implementation of a set of activities prioritised by Government which are necessary for the implementation of a new decentralisation package resulting from an agreement between Government and the opposition in 2018 and prepare the ground for the localisation of the SDGs through awareness raising activities and technical assistance for their alignment with, and integration into, local development plans.
