Global Forum on Local Development & Pan African Ministerial Workshop on Leadership Capacity Developm
Start Date: Oct 04, 2010
End Date: Oct 07, 2010
Venue: Serena Hotel Conference Center, Kampala
Description: The United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and the Government of Uganda are organizing the Global Forum on Local Development from 4 to 6 October 2010 in Kampala, Uganda. The United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA) through the Division for Public Administration and Development Management (DPADM) is collaborating with UNCDF in facilitating the organization the Global Forum and will organize the Pan African Ministerial Workshop on Leadership Capacity Development for Decentralized Governance and Poverty Reduction in Africa on 7 October 2010.

Thus, DPADM is planning to merge the workshop on Leadership capacity building for decentralized governance and poverty reduction in Africa into the Global Forum in Local Development to be attended by local governments’ leaders from all over the world. This will provide opportunity for African local governance and local governments’ leadership to share experiences, best practices, and learn from the others before they deliberate on strategies for how to enhance capacities for their local governance and development.

The convening of the Global Forum on Local Development is timely and strategic, bringing all the key players to the table to support the growing importance and significance of democratically elected Local Governments and making them champions for the achievement of the MDGs. The Forum is holistic taking into account both rural and local governments; and it strongly recognizes local governments as an important agent in state building, including in fragile post-conflict states.
