The present study examines the
challenges facing municipal governments in FYR Macedonia.
The introductory chapter provides some further context for
these developments, in terms of the challenges they pose
for urban areas and their governments. Chapter Two examines
issues for financial management of municipalities under the
decentralized regime, and the attendant need for improving
local government capacity. The third chapter highlights
questions in the area of communal services, where municipal
governments retain overall provision and supervisory
responsibilities of the local public enterprises. The fourth
chapter focuses on urban planning and land management, an
area critical to the efficient functioning of cities and for
which municipalities have acquired new obligations. The
approach of the report is to assemble existing data from
many available studies, both by the World Bank and by other
sources, and information obtained from interviews in the
country to articulate ideas and recommendations for
consideration by the Government elected in July 2006, by
municipal governments, and by other stakeholders.
