Improving the mobilization of subnational resources in developing countries is critical to expanding access to services like roads and sanitation and ensuring sustainable progress towards development goals. However, many places face technical or political barriers to raising or managing additional resources. Drawing from expert interviews and available literature, this report analyzes the current subnational resource landscape, identifies key barriers to mobilizing additional resources, presents evidence on promising solutions, and offers recommendations for USAID and other donors to support locally-led programs and reforms.
