The News

1. Developing Policies for Sustainability - the five national workshops

2. Designing the Blueprint for Better Local Governance in Southeast Asia - the regional conference

After two days of intense and stimulating discussions, the co-organised regional workshop between DELGOSEA and UCLG/UCLG ASPAC produced in ‘The Phnom Penh Record of Principles on Strengthening Decentralization and Local Governance’. The declaration is calling for a more permanent dialogue on decentralization and local governance to be established between ASEAN member states and for expanded collaboration with local authorities (LAs), local government associations as well as civil society, in a multi-stakeholder approach.
