UNDP is calling proposals for the Advocacy to Pass the Revenue Sharing Bill under its Liberia Decentralization Support Programme, to provide advocacy engagement with the National Legislature and relevant stakeholders for the enactment of the Revenue Sharing Bill.
The LDSP succeeded in organizing extensive dialogues and debates on decentralization across counties with citizens, Ministries Agencies and Commissions (MACs) and civil society organizations; facilitating the de-concentration platform as a quick win strategy to respond to the needs of citizens and bringing services closer to them; strengthening the capacity and competencies of local government through mentoring, coaching and trainings; establishing County Service Centers in fifteen (15) counties and the passage of the Local Government Act (LGA), amongst others.
Phase II of LDSP will build upon the gains made by LDSP I and focus more broadly on interventions geared toward ensuring that citizens are duly informed about the Local Government Act (LGA) and the benefits thereof, facilitating the implementation of the LGA, strengthening County Service Centers capacity to deliver services effectively and efficiently at the sub-national levels while engendering the crafting of legislations and policies to sustain decentralization.
Interested CSOs should design a proposal that focuses on engagement with relevant legislative committees, influential legislators, and the leadership of the House of Representatives aimed at wooing their support for the passage of the bill. The proposal should also include a component for media engagements to engender public awareness and support for the bill.
Grant will be awarded to the most technically compliant and responsive CSOs based on demonstrated capacity and experience with similar work. Selected CSOs will be expected to work in close collaboration with the Ministry of Internal Affairs and UNDP.
