Local Development Committees have been established as key structures for local governance within the project area. Project activities are selected in consultation with the local communities as well as other key stakeholders and officials from different levels of government. The committees enable communities to determine project activities, increase the ability to respond to community issues at the local level, and provide an institutional framework for local governance, administration and problem solving at the project. They have been created in each village and now, elected committees exist for each Groupement (a group of villages): Ntomb’eNzale, Ngongo and Lokanga.
