Summer Course: Decentralisation & the SDGs

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

During this summer course from 1 to 5 July 2019, participants will discuss how donor and development agencies can support a multilevel governance approach to deal with future development challenges. The course consists of several modules:

  • 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.
  • Inter-governmental (fiscal) relations and local service delivery in different country contexts address different (fiscal) support modalities.
  • We will discuss strategies and instruments for empowering local authorities. A new tool for local government capacity development will be introduced. We 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.

Participants who successfully finish the course will receive a professional certificate of completion from The Hague Academy for Local Governance.

This course is designed for donor and development professionals.
