In this regard, the financial self-evaluation Guide for local authorities is a powerful tool for all local governments wishing to improve their access to financial resources for their high priority investment projects. A large number of small and medium size local governments is indeed keen to explore external sources of finance for local infrastructure, but too often fail in their initial discussions and negotiations with potential financial partners. The major objective of this guide is ultimately to enable local governments to improve their communication and common understanding with banks, donors and investors, by helping
local governments to shape and provide a clear and fair financial analysis to their partners in support to their funding requests. The handbook aims to provide local governments with a simple and suitable methodology to complete these needed financial analysis through self-evaluation.
