The project aims to support AMCs’ institutional and organizational change so that they may improve their advocacy role and firmly represent the municipal interests in the evolving decentralization processes. In addition, the project will work on strengthening the capacities of AMCs, in order for them to support local governments in delivering efficient services to the citizens and demonstrate accountability. Consequently, this would lead to an improved role and status of the AMCs as a respected actor in promoting democratic developments in the context of the EU integration.
