The State of Local Governance: Trends in Kachin

20 Feb 2015

This report outlines the results of the Local Governance Mapping conducted by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in partnership with the Ministry of Home Affairs (MoHA) in Kachin State from November 2014 to January 2015.

Drawing on the perceptions of the people and local governance actors, the mapping has captured the current dynamics of governance at the front line and enables an analysis of the participation, responsiveness and accountability for local governance and basic service provision. The report examines processes, mechanisms and the way in which they are functioning for development planning and participation, people’s access to basic services and the information, transparency and accountability dimensions of local governance processes in the four selected townships of Tanai, Puto, Momauk and Myitkyina.
