SENEGAL-COLLECTIVITES-TRAINING / Sédhiou: local actors trained on the governance of public expenditure. – Senegalese press agency

Sédhiou, May 15 (APS) – Local actors in the Sédhiou region were trained on transparency, budgetary analysis and monitoring of public expenditure, at the initiative of the Citizen Network for Budget Transparency (RCTB), in collaboration with the National Coalition for Budgetary Monitoring (CONASUB), noted the APS.

This training of three, which ended this Wednesday, is financed by the European Union as part of the Civil Society Support Program (PASC).

It aimed to strengthen the capacities of local groups, civil society organizations and media engaged in transparency and budget monitoring, said Aïssatou Dramé, representative of the Citizen Network for Budget Transparency (RCTB).

“The working approach consists of strengthening the capacities of local actors in terms of monitoring investments and providing them with relevant tools to control and track the budget,” added Ms. Dramé.

The objective, she said, is to guarantee effective access to budgetary information, so that grassroots citizens can understand and participate in the budgetary management of their locality.

This session contributes to “strengthening citizen participation and promoting better governance at the level of sectoral directorates at the grassroots level and even within local authorities,” noted Joséphine Ndao, member of civil society and coordinator of the human rights shop in Sédhiou, also a beneficiary of this training.

The 4th deputy mayor of Sédhiou in charge of finance, youth and sports issues, praised the relevance of the approach.

“This synergy of actions will guarantee inclusion and transparency in the management of public finances”, by allowing “local elected officials to better understand budget management and be able to correctly execute public expenditure for the sustainable development of their localities”, declared Mame Aly Diallo.
