Financial Management in a Local Government Association

Guidance and systemization of experiences

One of the most common challenges for local government associations (LGAs) around the world is to have enough financial resources to fulfil their core functions. These core functions are to represent the interest of their members, the local governments of the country; to provide services to these local governments and to offer them a platform for exchange and mutual learning. Over the years, VNG International has been supporting many associations with technical advice, including on the management of finances and resources. This manual aims to provide useful insights to help the LGA members, the Board of Directors and LGA managers in addressing the challenges of financial sustainability of their association. This document focuses on national associations, because subnational and supranational associations face different financial challenges.
