Since 2001, support for the decentralisation process, in particular for Territorial Communities (Collectivités Territoriales), has been a priority area for German-Malian bilateral cooperation. The Programme d'Appui aux Collectivités Territoriales (PACT) has been a joint operation of German Technical Cooperation (TC) through GIZ and German Financial Cooperation (FC) through KfW Development Bank since its inception. The support of the German FC is intended to finance public investments by local authorities throughout the country in order to improve the socio-economic conditions of the populations of the beneficiary local authorities, through the ANICT and the Fonds National d'Appui aux Collectivités Territoriales (FNACT).
PACT V represents the continuation of PACT I-III phases for the financing of economic and social infrastructure through FNACT, for the benefit of Mali's Territorial Communities.
The Consultant is responsible for the implementation of Component I of PACT V, i.e. TA to ANICT which is the manager of FNACT and the promoter of Component I of PACT V for the management of non-targeted FNACT co-financing and ANICT measures.
PACT IV has a different design. To better support the regions in their economic development and in the light of the 2012-2014 crisis, the ANICT and German FC have been reoriented in Phase IV, particularly with regard to the procedures for allocating (equalising) resources and making payments. PACT IV finances structuring economic infrastructure for the benefit of selected medium-sized cities (component I) and provides targeted support to Territorial Communities particularly affected by the crisis by financing infrastructure identified during the "municipal debates" (component II; DEBACOM). Component I extends to 4 cities, selected in the regions of Segou and Mopti and includes includes investment projects of approx. 1m EUR per city. Component II covers 10 municipalities in the Mopti and Timbuktu regions, financing smaller projects in the villages of these municipalities.
