Abstract
The Local Area Development Programme (LADP), funded by the European Union (EU) and implemented by UNDP in partnership with UN-Habitat, in close coordination with the Ministries of Planning (MOP) of the Federal and Kurdistan Region governments and Governorate-level authorities, was designed to address the main issues that hinder planning at the local level, the implementation of plans and related delivery of service to citizens of Iraq. The overall objective has been to contribute to the stability and socio-economic development of the country by strengthening its government systems and enhancing the capacity to plan and execute budgets at the local level. Over the course of the past three years, LADP-EU has supported the development of coherent strategic frameworks for local planning that aimed to link investment expenditures to the achievements of the larger strategic investment priorities at both local or national levels embodied by the National Development Plan 2018-2022 and Iraq’s commitment to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
