  3. PLANNINNG/PRIORITIZATION OF PROJECTS/SDGs IMPLEMENTATION As a Local Authority we adopted a Bottom-up approach to planning: starting at Village level with consultations of the communities. The Village development plans are then brought to the Ward level where they are consolidated and prioritized for that particular ward. From the wards they are then brought to the district where they are consolidated together with those for the sector departments/ministries and consolidated into the District Strategic Plan

  4. Integration of SDGs into Local/Regional Budget We use the Program Based budgeting approach, where projects are drawn from the District Strategic Plan priorities. Furthermore the Council performance contract that is signed with the Ministry of Local Government which is a monitoring tool to the projects budgeted for and implemented in a particular year.
