Summer course: Decentralisation and the SDGs

When: 1-5 July, 2019
Where: The Hague, The Netherlands
Apply by: 17 May 2019

Decentralisation is an instrument to achieve development. In this course, participants will learn how decentralisation contributes to inclusive economic growth. The course will take into account the different challenges that governments face in a development context and focus on how donor involvement can encourage this process as well as how the SDGs can be translated into local policies.

The course consists of several modules:

  • The latest insights and recent lessons in decentralisation and sustainable local development.
  • Inter-governmental (fiscal) relations and local service delivery in different country contexts address different (fiscal) support modalities.
  • Strategies and instruments for empowering local authorities. A new tool for local government capacity development will be introduced. The module will explore 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.
