Project-Initiators & Partners - Introduction

The basic idea of the project proponents is to create a network for the replication of success stories in local governance between cities and municipalities within Southeast Asia. The best practices to be identified in “success places” will be replicated in “pilot/replication places” without having to reinvent the wheel.

Initially, the network will include five countries: Cambodia, the Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, and Vietnam. The main initiators are the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung of Germany and three organizations from Southeast Asia: Local Government Development Foundation (LOGODEF) in the Philippines, United Cities and Local Governments for Asia and Pacific (UCLG-ASPAC) in Indonesia, and the Thailand Environment Institute (TEI). The Association of Cities in Vietnam (ACVN) and the National League of Communes/Sangkats of the Kingdom of Cambodia (NLC/S) are also partners and key stakeholders of the project.
