New publication! Decentralised cooperation to achieve the 2030 Agenda

11 December 2018

The Conference of Peripheral Maritime Regions (CPMR) & PLATFORMA have just published a new study by Agustí Fernández de Losada & Anna Calvete Moreno entitled “Decentralised cooperation to achieve the 2030 Agenda: Towards a new generation of multi-stakeholder partnerships“.

Development cooperation no longer lies only in the hands of public authorities. While non-governmental organisations might be the most traditional counterpart of governments in international aid and development cooperation in many countries, they are experiencing the rise of other players.

How to put all these stakeholders together in order to create more efficient, coherent and complementary multistakeholder partnerships for decentralised cooperation? The authors explain with concrete examples and case studies how local and regional governments strive towards leading this new era of development cooperation.

The objectives of this study are to reinforce the new and innovative landscape and alliances for decentralised cooperation, in the context of the 2030 Agenda and the EU answer to the territorial dimension.
