Community Organization Councils strengthen the network
of community organizations on a subdistrict and municipal and give them
a united voice through which they can affect government policy. Initially
organized on an informal basis, the 2008 Community Councils Act has formalized
the administration and regulation of community organization councils.
In order to form a council, community organizations
in one region formalize their network and register with the local government.
The objective is to have representatives from each community organization
in the subdistrict or municipality, totaling an average of 30-40 communities.
Through regular meetings, the council discusses local problems and agrees
on solutions and appropriate strategies.
Over the long run, community organization councils should be a key actors in local development. Any local government project, should be scrutinized by the councils, as they are often more able to represent the citizens and advocate on their behalf.
