PPIAF’s Sub-National Technical Assistance (SNTA) program is helping the City of Dakar to obtain financing to improve its infrastructure services. SNTA’s support to the City of Dakar began in 2008, when PPIAF helped the city to undertake a Public Expenditure and Financial Accountability (PEFA)1 assessment. Following the PEFA, SNTA provided technical assistance to help the City improve its revenue improvement strategy and obtain a credit rating for its fi rst municipal bond issuance.
