Review of the Commonwealth Local Government Good Practice Scheme

Rachael Duchnowski


The overarching objective of the Commonwealth Local Government Good Practice Scheme (GPS) was to contribute towards the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals at the local level; there were four expected outputs:

1. Increased capacity of local authorities to plan and deliver services, through successful implementation of CLGF-funded projects focussed on the following nationally agreed themes, relevant to the achievement of the MDGs;

2. Measurable and/or assessable improvements in individual and/or departmental/local authority management efficiency and effectiveness delivered through the GPS projects;

3. National local government associations possess effective knowledge management systems and dissemination networks working nationally - and internationally through CLGF;

4. Utilisation of expertise of local government practitioners in partner countries to improve local government performance more widely.
