TASAF A Support or an Obstacle to Local Government Reform?

"There are indications that TASAF might promote political favouritism at the local level - i.e that it may be used as a resource for re-election by local politicians, that it may favour certain villages against other, and may introduce non-inclusive arrangements of social assistance in the communities. It appears that TASAF will support the social objectives of the Local Government Reform. It may also push local governments into being better partners for the communities and becoming more effective in delivery of services and public works."
