The last in country-course this year, jointly organized by the DeLoG and the Ministry of Interior, Security and Decentralisation in DRC and supported by Belgian Development Agency (BTC), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the European Union was held from the 9th-11th December in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo. The seminar which attracted around 100 participants, aimed at contributing to the debate on the role and implementation of decentralization in the DRC. Participants were carefully drawn from government institutions at all levels, non-governmental organisations as well as from the academia.
At the end of the workshop, the participants compiled a final declaration that contained recommendations on how to move forward the decentralisation process for central, provincial and local government institutions as well as for development partners and civil society organisations. The document was presented to the minister of interior security and decentralization in the DRC on 19th December 2014.
