II Conference of African and European Regional and Local Authorities
Start Date: Nov 06, 2009
End Date: Nov 07, 2009
Venue: Palazzo Vecchio, Florence, Italy
Description: The II Conference of European and African Regional and Local Authorities will focus on “The impact of the economic and financial crisis on decentralized governance in Africa: the response of local authorities to the new development challenge”. Its aim is to raise the awareness of the international community about the difficulties that local institutions are experiencing in responding to the development challenges posed by the financial crisis.

Representatives of international agencies and civil society, national and regional authorities, as well as international organizations and senior managers of public institutions and/or programs related to decentralized governance in Africa and Europe will gather in Florence to review good practices and distill lessons learned on how to reduce the impact of the crisis and its effects.

The conference will revolve around the following topics:

1. Decentralization and sustainable development:  leveraging  territorial resources to fight poverty and achieve the MDGs
2. Financial and fiscal decentralization: revenue raising and expenditure powers
3. Enhancing delivery of basic services at the local level
4. Exchanging competencies, knowledge and resources: north-south and south–south partnerships among regional and local authorities.
