CONNECT: it’s all about sharing local expertise
15 June 2016
Are you looking for an expert from another country? PLATFORMA and VNG International are presenting CONNECT at the European Development Days 2016 (EDD).
This project is a new mechanism that will allow towns and regions in developing countries to find partners in Europe, and beyond, with relevant expertise to support their actions and their development. CONNECT will provide a quick and adequate response to requests for capacity development and learning in which local and regional governments expertise is involved.
Towns and regions around the world will have to play a significant role in the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Their experience and practical knowledge on fighting climate change, strengthening good governance and fostering sustainable urbanisation must be mobilized worldwide as a valuable tool for global development.
