Pact for the Future of Humanity
Decentralized Development Cooperation
Local government development cooperation has never been an end in itself; it should be regarded as one of the key instruments to localize the international agendas and to tackle global challenges at local level, in view of reaching greater effectiveness.
The international community has long been discussing the efficiency of international cooperation. Decentralized and city-to-city development cooperation has grown over the last decade, and an increasing number of governments are engaging in cooperation with local governments.
More than ever, international cooperation is proving to be essential. It will be critical to guarantee exchanges of knowledge and experiences, through decentralized cooperation to build back better, stronger, and more inclusive after the pandemic. Local and regional governments must be the guardians of this international solidarity.
The longstanding relations among local and regional governments around the world have strengthened despite the trying times and decentralised cooperation, peer to peer learning and project implementation have resisted and in fact gained momentum as efficient and flexible tools for transformation.
The Pact will allow us to the impact of decentralized cooperation on SDG localization, reinvent the core of cooperation, and ensure we renew financing mechanisms and ecosystems to enhance the impact on decentralized development cooperation.
