The Association of Local Government Authorities (ALAT) is the national local government association whose role is promoting and sustaining the goals and ideals of decentralization. ALAT contracted DPC to establish database of all LGAs. The primary objective is to enhance ALAT’s institutional capacity to perform more efficiently as a member-based organization. The secondary objective is to inform policy and aid decision-making on the future of ALAT. DPC is responsible for describing the approach of data collection, presenting the data collected and describing the key findings of the survey. After presenting the descriptive analysis to the ALAT officials, DPC will offer additional explorative analysis for a limited number of variables.
