The World Bank has provided support to the Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs) through a District Development Fund (DDF) which has a financial reward for good performance by the Assemblies on annual basis. Support is also provided to the assemblies to build their capacities for identified capacity gaps.  Trend analysis is being carried out to understand the performance and to recommend which capacity gaps need to be covered. This is supported by the World Bank (Sept –Dec 2014)
