The State of Local Governance: Trends in Kayah
This report outlines the results of the Local Governance Mapping conducted by UNDP in Kayah State. Based on the perceptions of the people and local governance actors, the mapping has tried to capture some key aspects of the current dynamics of governance at the frontline of state-citizen interaction and focuses in its analysis on participation in public sector planning, access to basic services and accountability in local governance.
In consultation with the Kayah State government, it was agreed that the Local Governance Mapping be conducted in three townships - Loikaw, Hpruso and Mese between April and August 2014. These three townships are representative for the diversity in economic activities and living conditions found in Kayah State.
