What kind opportunities exist to improve synergies between development-related actions led by local and regional governments and EU strategies promoting decentralisation and local governance?. What experiences have PLATFORMA* members and partners had in terms of decentralised development cooperation? How accessible is information on EU support to decentralisation and local governance?
All these questions and more are dealt with in PLATFORMA’s new publication on local and regional development cooperation, entitled “Development effectiveness at the local and regional level”. It also includes a number of examples of development cooperation initiatives undertaken by a number of European municipalities and regions. The publication is available in English and French.
