Video Conference on Innovative Practices on "Empowering Gram Panchayats"

May 19, 2016
1. From the point of view of West Bengal, the higher level goals of the project are improved service delivery and governance in rural and peri-urban areas. Improved GP performance in these areas will have a direct impact on the services received by the rural population. It will also have positive impacts on the economic productivity on these areas by expanding public sector investment. 2. From a national perspective the project will contribute to the implementation of the 73rd Constitutional Amendment relating to rural local government, not just in West Bengal, but also more broadly through the demonstration effects it seeks to achieve and through the lessons that it will generate for decentralization processes in other States. 3. The Project Development Objective (PDO): is to develop institutionally strengthened GPs.
