Coordination Key To Achieving Decentralization - Dr. Tokpah

GBARNGA, September 6 (LINA) - Internal Affairs Minister Dr. Henrique Tokpa has observed that coordination is a key factor in the implementation of decentralization in Liberia.

He noted that effective coordination is required among decentralization implementation actors, especially local government officers, to ensure timely service delivery.

According to Dr. Tokpah, local government officials are the main drivers of the decentralization process and, as such, they must work together to achieve the objective of the National Policy on Decentralization and Local Governance.

Dr. Tokpa spoke Monday at the beginning of a week-long Decentralization Coordination Workshop which is ongoing in Gbarnga City, Bong County.

The workshop organized by the Ministry of Internal Affairs with funding through the Liberia Decentralization Support Program, brings together all County Superintendents, Assistant Superintendents for Development and Fiscal Affairs as well as Coordinators of the County Service Centers.

He urged the participants to take advantage of the training exercise so that they can become knowledgeable and build their coordination and team building skills.

Implementation of the Liberia Decentralization Support Program (LDSP) is funded by the European Union, Swedish Government, USAID, UNMIL and UNDP.
