The Index is a tool designed to help the Government, the donors and other stakeholders in regional development policy to determine the current state of development of every municipality in North Macedonia
The Technical Documentation Fund (TDF) is the key component of the project. In the true spirit of leaving no one behind, it has been developed to provide immediate funding to municipalities that are most in need for preparation of technical documentation for their top priority infrastructure development projects.
UNDP is currently supporting municipalities by developing an International Technical Development Fund for implementation of basic infrastructure projects for the selected municipalities. The TDF is foreseen to provide financial resources that less-developed municipalities need to undertake necessary preparatory work for development projects that are eligible for EU, state or donor funding, either through direct grants or low-interest loans.
