Our partner  Development Partners Network on Decentralisation & Local Governance (DeLoG) invites you to join this year’s Annual Meeting on Inclusive and Resilient Decentralisation and Local Governance Reforms and Institutions with a High-Level Policy Dialogue. 

Over the last few years, and especially since the outbreak of COVID-19, the environment and the global agendas on DLG have changed and adapted. DLG approaches are under pressure from social, economic, ecological and political challenges. The provision of equal and secure access to public services is a core responsibility of Local and Regional Governments (LRGs). Clearly defined functions and mandates as well as access to finance are necessary prerequisites to enable LRGs to fully meet their responsibilities.

This High-Level Opening event sets the scene for this year’s DeLoG Annual Meeting by providing room for policy dialogue among members and partners to exchange on their strategic shifts and priorities. The key question to be addressed will be how the support for inclusive and resilient DLG institutions is evolving in the face of current global challenges and what role partnerships and networks like DeLoG may play in future.

The opening event  will be hosted by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).  

NALAS President, Tatiana Badan, Mayor of Selemet, Moldova will also be addressing the audience.
