Decentralised cooperation in the context of the 2030 Agenda

Concept notes and papers , Available in Français Deutsch

This document has been drafted at the request of the Committee of the Regions, for the Fifth Assises of Decentralised Cooperation (Brussels 10 and 11 July 2017). It offers an evaluation of the relevance of the fashionable yet understudied topic of decentralised cooperation in the context of the ‘localisation’ of the 2030 Agenda. To tackle that subject, it will first consider the rise of local authorities, through their associations – an institutional form of decentralised cooperation – as their voices are legitimate and should be heard in the international debate on development. It will then study the contributions that local authorities have made to the creation of the 2030 Agenda, which contains several goals that cover areas usually included within the jurisdiction of sub-national authorities. To conclude, the analysis will consider the European Union’s support of local authorities as development stakeholders, specifically in decentralised cooperation.
