The 2030 Agenda through the eyes of local and regional governments’ associations

Five years after the adoption of the 2030 Agenda, the terms “Sustainable Development Goals” and “global goals” are becoming increasingly familiar and better understood, including among local and regional governments and their national associations. However, understanding is not synonymous with ‘adoption’. Let’s discover the progress made by Europe’s municipalities, regions and their national associations in working with and towards achieving the SDGs.[…]

GOLD V 2019 – La localización de las agendas mundiales – Región de Europa

GOLD V 2019 – La localización de las agendas mundiales – Región de Europa

Europa es una de las regiones donde la descentralización está fuertemente arraigada en las instituciones y las políticas de muchos países. Sin embargo, los gobiernos locales y regionales han experimentado grandes desafíos y reformas en su entorno institucional en los últimos años que han afectado el alcance de sus responsabilidades, recursos y autonomía. La Agenda 2030 se ha convertido en una oportunidad para que puedan influir en los procesos de formulación de políticas, abogar por un entorno propicio mejorado y una gobernanza multinivel, y fortalecer los mecanismos de participación ciudadana.

The Local Business Environment and Decentralised Cooperation

The Local Business Environment and Decentralised Cooperation

National business environment reform does not always lead to an improvement of business conditions at the local level. But through decentralised cooperation, local and regional governments can lead reforms that support business growth, create jobs and drive innovation.

The first objective of this study is to show that improving local business environment requires building the capacity of local and regional governments in partner countries and promoting decentralisation reforms.

The second objective is to show the potential contribution of decentralised cooperation to help local and regional governments undertake business environment reforms and advocate for decentralisation reforms.

Local and regional government and the ACP-EU partnership agreement

Local and regional government and the ACP-EU partnership agreement

The Cotonou Partnership Agreement will expire on 29 February 2020. It is a comprehensive political, aid and trade accord concluded between the European Union and 79 countries of the Group of African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) States. It is also one of the few development cooperation agreements which explicitly includes local and regional governments among the key stakeholders in its implementation in article 4.

This study seeks to find out if local and regional governments have been actively involved in the implementation of the Cotonou Agreement at national, regional and pan-ACP levels. It also looks at the potential prospects for a stronger role for local and regional governments in the post-2020 ACP-EU relationship.

Local and regional governments strive towards leading this new era of development cooperation through what has been called “decentralised cooperation».

Shaping a new generation of decentralised cooperation

Shaping a new generation of decentralised cooperation

There is a general consensus that local and regional governments play a crucial role in sustainable development. Proof of this is that they were very active during the preparation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and they continue to be so in the localising process. Decentralised cooperation is consequently a key resource for achieving the SDGs with localised approaches, as well as the New Urban Agenda, and other global agendas.
