The objective of the Belize Municipal Development Project is to improve access to basic municipal infrastructure and to enhance municipal management in selected town and city councils of Belize. The project works toward increasing the  provision of drainage, improve local road infrastructure as well as improve the ability of town and city councils to work on public infrastructure investments. It also provides technical assistance for town and city councils to formally adopt Municipal Growth Plans, build financial capacity, improve traffic management, and increase technical assistance to central governments.

The ODTA project is using the Georesults visualization tool to display images, videos and results stories of the project as the activities are taking place. Georesults helps to enhance transparency in project activities as it allows stakeholders and other interested parties to explore a project from a local perspective. This online space features an interactive map and a photo set with the before and after pictures of different project locations.
