The bulk of the issues discussed in this document is centered on the management of local financial resources by the different levels of local authorities, and fiscal decentralization. The themes which are studied are on the national strategies for reinforcing the financial management of local authorities including access to credit, local financial management, local financial instruments, the control of local public management and the sharing of resources between central government and local authorities. For most of these topics we deem it appropriate to refer you to the works which the Observatory on Local Finance (OLF) set up by the Municipal Development Program (MDP) have been conducting for some years now.
