Over the past decade, the Local Governnance and Community Development Programme LGCDP (2008 - 2016) has been the only nation-wide programme on local governance. It was designed for rebuilding the trust between the citizens and the state at a time when the country had just emerged from a period of conflict, and there was no elected leadership or the sense of accountability and citizen oriented service delivery at the local level. The LGCDP was meant to prepare the ground for institutionalized elected local governments that have become a reality under the new constitution.
