The Second Regional Best Practices Award just launched!
The Organization of Regions United (ORU Fogar), in collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) just launched the II Regional Best Practices Award.
The contest intends to promote and encourage sharing of good practices, which have been implemented by regional governments and have improved the quality of services provided to citizens. The Regional Best Practices Award targets regions, provinces, federal states and networks of regional governments that wish to strongly contribute – locally and internationally – towards better service delivery for all citizens.
Best practices can be submitted in English, French and Spanish on a rolling basis until April 30th, 2017. Guidelines to participate are available on ORU Fogar’s website. A team of well-known trajectory and public credibility, among which outstanding professionals of the academic, business, cultural and public administration sectors, will be in charge of selecting the finalists and the winners of each category among all Best Practices submitted. Wouter Boesman, Policy Director of PLATFORMA, is among the jury.
The Awards Ceremony will be held during ORU Fogar’s next General Assembly, which will take place in the Basque Country, in October 2017. The winners will have their practice published on the Bank of Good Practices of ORU Fogar, and disseminated through organizers and partners’ channels to ensure maximum outreach and support to local and regional governments as key actors of development.
All regional, departmental and provincial governments are encouraged to participate and share their best practices!
