World Bank Approves $100 Million to Improve Governance for Service Delivery in Malawi

The World Bank Board of Executive Directors approved today, a $100 million grant for the Malawi Governance to Enable Service Delivery Project with the objective of strengthening Local Authorities’ institutional performance, responsiveness to citizens, and management of resources for public service delivery.

Decentralizing the delivery of essential public services, such as health and education, is Government policy, and is known to improve their effectiveness and efficiency. As decentralization continues to deepen in Malawi, delivery will depend increasingly on Local Authorities as a tool for advancing sector aims through their systems.
