The theory of change of the proposed intervention is as follows - IF the capacity of AREC is strengthened and its business processes are developed by establishing: (1) a unique, accurate and sustainable Address register system, which is available for and utilized by other stakeholder institutions; (2) by modernization of the geodetic infrastructure, in compliance to the EU standards; and (3) by updating the NSDI geoportal in the benefit of all major stakeholders; AND, IF AREC is serviced by (4) a capable and self-sufficient ICT-organization; and (5) all important documents are registered and properly archived in a digitalized format; THen AREC will provide high-quality services and accurate data to its clients and it will increase its transparency and accountability level. This will enable all people in Macedonia, including the most vulnerable, to exercise their basic rights to register their property and place of residence, and thus to exercise their right to vote and to influence the decision-making in their own communities. At the same time, AREC will reach a level of accuracy, service and function required for integrating into existing EU systems.
