The Justice Delivered Locally (JDL) project is an initiative of the Ministry of Justice and Legal Affairs (MJLA), Solomon Islands that is being supported by the World Bank. The broad objectives of the project were to assist the Government in determining the most appropriate modalities for delivering state justice services at the local level. The fiscal analysis component undertook public expenditure analysis of the different court systems through an analysis of annual budget data and individual costing of activities. Key public financial management issues in the MJLA were also set out. This component fed into a wider institutional analysis that aims to provide a stronger evidence base about the various obstacles and challenges to local justice delivery; and to prepare reform options with respect to local courts.
