On Tuesday 06 April 2021, UCLG Africa in partnership with the Oriental region, the Agence of l’Oriental, Prima Terra and Echos Communication organized a webinar on the theme of decentralized cooperation.
Based on the observation that several local authorities are seeking to strengthen and increase their presence on the national, regional and international scene, as well as to give more coherence to the actions carried out by their various departments, the seminar aimed to share, through the crossed views of local authorities from the South and the North, elements likely to contribute to the sustainability of the international action carried out by local authorities.
Three panels of reflection were held, for the attention of the hundred or so participants, on the following themes :
– International cooperation, a lever for the economic development of the territory,
– The role of national associations of local governments in the implementation of international actions,
– Development Agencies at the service of decentralized cooperation at the level of local authorities.
The meeting was also marked by the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between the Communes of Guisser of the Kingdom of Morocco and Obala of Cameroon.
