PLATFORMAwards Ceremony: Decentralised cooperation, a valuable tool for better coordination of multilevel governance
“International cooperation between local and regional governments enables better coordination of relations between the international, national, regional and local levels, as well as between regions and municipalities themselves,” stressed Congress Secretary General Andreas Kiefer at the PLATFORMAwards ceremony on 8 June 2020. “This is all the more crucial in times of crisis, such as that of COVID-19, which has hit many countries and communities hard. This model of cooperation is just as essential when it comes to finding answers to the challenges of climate change or implementing the UN Sustainable Development Goals,” he added.
