As part of assessment and monitoring instruments designed within the STAR2 project, a Local Governance Mapping is a particular exercise to be undertaken at the beginning and at the end of the project implementation.
The initial mapping should ideally precede and inform subsequent project activities, while the final mapping will serve to provide a measurement of change in the local governance environment as well as identify any attributable STAR2 project effects on local governance.
The objective of the assessment is to implement a national governance mapping exercise in 61 LGUs. The mapping exercise helps understanding how people experience local governance, and how local governance gaps are seen from different perspectives.
The project included the development of a web portal which represent a knowledge management portal for the local government and municipalities in Albania.
