About the product

Local Authorities Financial and Institutional Analysis System is a concerted approach that aims, through analytical tools, to grasp the problems linked to local management and governance and, in particular, the organizational operations of the authorities, their financing and the economic dimension of their development. It relies on diagnostics (organizational, financial and economic), public consultations and action plans created with input from all concerned stakeholders. LAFIAS piloting in three West Africa countries (Guinea, Benin and Mali) enabled UN Capital Development Fund to test these analysis and diagnostic tools as well as the local public consultation approaches on technical issues.
