LebanonNewsletterSince 2007, UN-Habitat has been adopting a community based approach through establishing Regional Technical Offices (RTOs) at the level of Unions of Municipalities (UoMs).

The RTO is a unit performing under the mandate of the Union of Municipalities, and comprises motivated local experts and technical persons. The unit aims at mobilizing public and civil local actors to collectively address local needs based on available resources.

The RTO is a tool that aims to strengthen local governance, enhance service delivery, and mainstream planned interventions.
