DeLoG Newsletter No. 18
Welcome to the summer edition of our Newsletter! In this issue we report on the 8th DeLoG Annual Meeting which was hold in June in New York. Three intense days of deliberations and exchange amongst members have injected new dynamics and energy and ultimately led to their renewed engagement. It further shaped the areas of interventions and activities of the DeLoG platform in the upcoming years.
Our in profile series features DeLoG focal point Jorge Rodriguez Bilbao from the EC. He has been closely involved in drafting the recently published Communication on Empowering Local Authorities in partner countries for enhanced governance and more effective development outcomes and gives us some insights on the importance of this communication for the EC as well as its implications for implementing decentralisation support.
We also report on our activities within the learn4dev joint learning network, namely its annual meeting held in June in Bonn, Germany and the upcoming DeLoG/learn4dev E-learning seminar which will be implemented as a pilot course to better adjust the contents and formats to the needs of the participants and will then be carried out once a year.
