Background

The Tunisia Accountability Decentralization and Effective Municipalities (TADAEEM) program is funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). The program aims to help the Government of Tunisia decentralize governance to the institutions closest to its citizenry and continue to strengthen its nascent democracy. The project, alongside a team of subcontractors, works on enhancing citizen participation in the process of governance as well as the government’s capacity to deliver the services that citizens prioritize. The project team works in 12 Governorates, 33 adjacent municipalities, and with the central government in Tunis to ultimately strengthen the ecosystem of stakeholders and institutions across the country. Outside of Tunis, the project holds 5 regional offices.
