USAID’s Planning and Local Governance Project (PLGP) has worked at both the national policy level and at the local level since 2012 to promote acceptance of the principles of decentralized governance, and to disseminate and institutionalize practical and effective methods and techniques for municipal management. In September 2017, PLGP was extended to continue our work to reinforce decentralization gains and assist local governments to better provide municipal services and economic development opportunities and to become more involved in addressing factors that can lead to violent extremism.

We work closely with our 14 partner municipalities, which are:

Berat, Bulqiza, Cerrik, Elbasan, Fier, Kamza, Korça, Kuçova, Lushnja, Patos, Saranda, Vora, Vlora, and Tirana
