Consultations and Research on Local Governance in the Punjab

Local governments are critical for improving service delivery and promoting local economic and social development. Unfortunately, in the past, local governments have not been given due importance. With the passage of Punjab Local Government Act (PLGA), 2019, the revival of local governments in Punjab is anticipated. After the passage of law, the key issue is implementation because, without optimal implementation, the benefits of the legislation will not reach the poorer sections of the society.  The Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), a development organization from Germany, and the Centre for Public Policy and Governance (CPPG), Forman Christian College University have collaborated to engage diverse stakeholders to facilitate and improve the implementation of the new PLGA 2019.
