Cities and local authorities are catalysts for change and drivers of development, as recognised in the recent post-2015 discussions. A multilevel governance approach is needed to deliver development to citizens and make sure that poor and marginalised groups are included in economic growth policies. But how can governments at all levels cooperate effectively? And how can capacities at national and local level be strenghtened?

During this Summercourse we discuss how donor and development agencies can support a multilevel governance approach to deal with future development challenges. The course consists of several modules:

  • What are the latest insights and recent lessons in decentralisation and sustainable local development? We will explore the potential of local governance in realising sustainable development, while taking into account the political economy of decentralisation reforms.
  • Our internationally renowned expert on decentralisation Jamie Boex talks about inter-governmental (fiscal) relations and local service delivery in different country contexts and addresses different (fiscal) support modalities.
  • We will discuss strategies and instruments for empowering local authorities. A new tool for local government capacity development, that has recently been developed by VNG International, will be introduced. We zoom in on the capacity of local authorities to design strategies, deliver and manage services, increase transparency and accountability, and successfully engage with other tiers of governments, civil society and the private sector.

Deadline for application is 12 May, 2017. For more information about our general conditions and the online application form, click here.
