Good governance training for provincial and municipal administrators
The administration grouping inside Vanuatu’s six Provincial governments, municipalities including the Lenakel Municipality are presently attending a two-week Commonwealth upskilling training in Port Vila.
This generally is the Secretary Generals (SGs or acting SGs) and Human Resources Officers.
An incentive of the Commonwealth Local Government Forum (CLGF) the first week is a Trainer of Trainers (TOT) workshop for the Local Elected Leaders facilitated by Suva based lecturer Mr Feue Tipu.
Vanuatu has its share of corruption issues, poor public service and inefficient government handlings both in the provincial and municipal authorities much of which has been publicised in the media and this is where CLGL hones in on, as it has worldwide to advocate and promote good governance.
Its programs are designed to strengthen local government structures, capacity and skills, which also brings each recipient country a step closer in achieving the Millennium Development Goals and has projects to develop the capacity of councilors and officers in newly elected councils to improve their planning and performance.
For 17 years now CLGF is committed to promoting good governance and to create a reliable structure in a government that serves the need of the people and Vanuatu is grateful for CLGF’s assistance, more so to kick start the new year operations.
First Political Advisor to Minister of Internal Affairs, Daniel Bule made the official opening in the workshop venue at Nirvana Resort, Pango on Monday witnessed by head of the Provincial Authorities Cherol Ala and other Provincial Authority staff.
