UN-HABITAT gives Somaliland tax collector a big boost.

A Geographic Information System (GIS) established in Hargeisa Municipality with technical assistance from UN-HABITAT has helped to increase annual property tax revenues by 248 percent, from USD169,062 in 2005 to USD588,754 in 2008.

New technology and innovative thinking delivers real change in tax collection in Africa.

I like this!

Africa needs its own tax solutions. This, quite literally, is a local one.
