The World Bank has proposed new architecture for rural service delivery in Solomon Islands.
A new Bank report shows 60 percent of more than 130 million US dollars spent on rural service delivery has come directly under the control of MPs with little or no accountability made for how it has been spent.
Bank official Erik Johnson says this means the majority of the country's rural service delivery is going through the weakest channels with no transparency on its usage and effectiveness.
"It's time for a co-ordinated approach where the distinct streams of funding and types of activities need to be better defined to eliminate heavy amounts of duplication. And also really enhance the integrity of each of these systems so that they're delivering more effective development assistance to rural communities."
Erik Johnson says the report contains a detailed set of recommendations for a new structure for rural service delivery which he hopes the new government will adopt.
