This project is part of

The Programme de Bonne Gouvernance (PBG) works to improve the management capacity and accountability of select legislatures and local governments in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The PBG promotes good governance by creating a stronger demand for government accountability through the enhancement of civil society’s advocacy capacity. The program also develops decentralization policies, helps local governments improves service delivery, and increases the institutional capability of national and provincial assemblies. The program partners with three different groups: parliamentary institutions at the central and provincial level; public institutions that have a role in decentralization; and civil society and community-based organizations. The program is being implemented in the provinces of Bandundu, Katanga, Maniema, and South Kivu. Project activities include advocating for better protection of small farmers against illegal taxation and land tenure insecurity, for better fiscal management, for action on health issues, and against corruption.
