Breaking Through for Future Generations
Annual Retreat 2022
Workshop: Local Finance - Reinforcing capacities and sharing knowledge
Workshop. Jointly organized with the FMDV.
💬 Interpretation available in: English, French, Spanish.
🎯 Description: Access to finance is essential for local and regional governments (LRGs) to take a bold and active part in the implementation of global agendas. The localisation of financing, an urgency that has escalated with the COVID-19 pandemic, is a core priority of UCLG’s action agenda. The strategy formalised in 2018 was renewed in 2021 in collaboration with the Global Fund for Cities Development (FMDV) and led to the drafting of a "Global Action Framework on Localising Financing". As part of this strategy, the UCLG World Secretariat, its regional sections and FMDV have taken several initiatives and developed a number of tools, instruments and services to provide concrete support to LRGs to increase their knowledge and action capacities on the topic of sustainable finance, notably based on peer-to-peer exchanges and partnerships with practitioners. Among these tools and services, we can find: the World Observatory on Subnational Government Finance and Investment, a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) introducing subnational government finances, the Local Finance Knowledge Hub, the FMDV-AFD Campus webinars, the coaching, match making sessions and investment forum. The aim of the workshop is to introduce participants to the main features of the tools and services offered by UCLG and FMDV to provide information, knowledge and capacity building on local finances, and discuss their outreach and impact.
🎤 Some of the voices you will hear: FMDV and UCLG teams will present the tools and services available to the LRG constituency and UCLG network regarding local finances. All participants, including UCLG sections, partners, LRGs and their associations, are invited to give their inputs on how to improve the tools or their impact and how they wish to participate in the activities planned for 2022.
