Steering Committee

What is Steering Committee (SC)?


The Decentralization and Local Development Programme (dldp) is part of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SCO-A) country programme in Albania, based on a bilateral framework agreement between the governments of Albania and Switzerland.

DLDP is governed by a national Steering Committee (SC), which meets regularly.

  • Main functions of the steering committee consist on:
    ascertain that dldp implementation is in accordance with the main goals, objectives and expected results outlined in the project document;
  • ascertain that project implementation contributes to policy dialogue on decentralization and local governance in the country;
  • assure information flow and exchange with regard to relevant national developments, link and connections to national level actors;
  • assure that sustainability of dldp interventions is as far as possible guaranteed;

Dldp serves as secretariat of Steering Committee.
