In order to ensure that the government is able to provide its citizens with the necessary services and amenities, it is essential that the problems of governance are addressed.

However, with the passage of time further reforms were needed to improve the functioning of the system. The 2022 reforms institutionalizing the engagement of community institutions in local governance under the amended article 87, which spearheaded the CLLG Policy, are a milestone in Balochistan that will ensure local government becomes more effective and responsive to the needs of the people.
