Botswana Association of Local Authorities (BALA)
BALA plays a pivotal role in fostering cooperation and collaboration among local authorities in Botswana. The association promotes community participation and ownership, which is reinforced through the country’s decentralised governance system. BALA provides local authorities with training and capacity building, which ultimately allows them to better serve their communities. BALA is also actively involved in environmental conservation, waste management and renewable energy projects, which demonstrates the authority’s commitment to a sustainable future.
