- What are the latest insights and recent lessons in decentralisation and sustainable local development? We will explore the potential of local governance in realising sustainable development, while taking into account the political economy of decentralisation reforms with public finance and planning expert Paul Smoke (to be confirmed).
- Our internationally renowned expert on decentralisation Jamie Boex talks about inter-governmental (fiscal) relations and local service delivery in different country contexts and addresses different (fiscal) support modalities.
- We will discuss strategies and instruments for empowering local authorities. A new tool for local government capacity development, that has recently been developed by VNG International, will be introduced. We zoom in on the capacity of local authorities to design strategies, deliver and manage services, increase transparency and accountability, and successfully engage with other tiers of governments, civil society and the private sector.
After successful completion of the course you will receive a certificate of The Hague Academy for Local Governance.
