PIERI-20331 Citizen participation and mobilization of local resources in Benin: The case of built and unbuilt property taxes

Abstract

One of the main reasons that explain the poor performance in the collection of property taxes in developing countries in general and Benin in particular is the fact that its mobilization often provokes strong opposition and is at the origin of an important political cost. Expect using randomization technic on target population composed of landholders, the policy measure to be implemented as part of this project aims to strengthen the impact of citizen participation in decision-making on property tax mobilization. In the end, the project will contribute to promoting the mobilization of property taxes by fiscal responsibility of landholders.
