People with proposals: supporting local democracy in SololÃ¡, Guatemala
Video clip about the NIMD programme in Guatemala with the local government and citizens of Sololá, and featuring Guatemala’s president Álvaro Colom.
In Guatemala, NIMD helps local politicians and citizens, organised in Civil Action Committees (CACs), devise a Shared Municipal Agenda (Agenda Municipal Compartida): a joint plan for the development of their municipality.
The programme currently covers 27 municipalities in nine counties. With the programme NIMD and its partners are helping municipal governments to
- improve the management of public funds;
- raise the level of public services;
- and make them more accountable to residents.
