Deliver more, serve better! – don’t miss the 3rd edition of the EU – Eastern Partnership Local Leaders’ Forum
The 2021 EU-EaP Local Leaders Forum will focus on the Local Public Administration and Decentralisation Reform as a booster for sustainable and inclusive development.
Decentralisation reforms in Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries (Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine) have increased the role of local governments in key strategic sectors and while significant progress has been made, major challenges remain in terms of political commitment and advancing the fiscal dimension of trends.
Against this backdrop, the Network of Associations of Local Authorities of South-East Europe (NALAS), in cooperation with the Latvian Association of Local and Regional Governments (LALRG), the Association of Local Authorities in Lithuania (ALAL), CEMR and PLATFORMA, organises this 3rd Forum online on 7 December 2021, from 10:00 to 14:00 (CET).
The Local Leaders Forum aims to open a multi-institutional dialogue at the European level with EU institutions, EU member states and EaP countries on the new perspectives for local public administration reform through the lenses of sustainable development that leaves no one and no space behind.
Local leaders from the Eastern Partnership and the European Union countries will exchange, debate and inspire each other. They will also hear about the future post 2020 Eastern Partnership priorities and the EU support: how to build a cooperation framework on local level which would promote effective governance and institutional reforms in EaP countries such as public administration and decentralisation processes in order to reinforce local democracy.
Register for the event before 1 December 2021. The working languages are English, Ukrainian, Georgian and Romanian (with simultaneous interpretation).
