European decentralised cooperation in the spotlight at CoR – Join the event on 5th February



Working with communities, in a long term participative and local approach, decentralised cooperation has a great power for change and for reaching and impacting on citizens and institutions. The fact that – sometimes – it cannot reach the results expected is not due to the fact that the methods is wrong per se but it is due to the fact that it remains often underfunded and with not enough support, including the political one, in the medium and long term.

This quote by Antonella Valmorbida briefly describes the core concept of her newly published book, “The European Decentralised Cooperation: Acting for development engaging local authorities and civil society”. Ms. Valmorbida, based upon her proven expertise in field, states that the European continent can be a real leader in this perspective, since it based its own development on local and regional autonomy.

The book presentation will take place on February 5th, 2019 at the Committee of the Regions documentation centre (JDE 1st floor), in Brussels, from 2:30pm to 3:30pm, as side event of the Forum of Cities & Regions for Development Cooperation
The presentation won’t be a simple introduction of the book, but it will be designed as a round table, in order to establish a constructive exchange on the place of decentralised cooperation in Europe nowadays and its conceivable future.

Ken Godfrey, European Partnership for Democracy’s Executive Director, will moderate the session, animated by Ms. Afef Zaddem, Delegate of the Local Democracy Agency (LDA) of Kairouan, Tunisia, Mr. Radouène Bouden, Mayor of Kairouan and Ms. Serena Foracchia, Councillor for International City of Reggio Emilia, Italy (tbc).

We should not be totally blind and look at our reality only through the lenses of fear and catastrophic approach. Community approach to problems and its added value is a characteristic of the EU member states’ governance, and we should be ready to share it with our neighbours, while picking up also all their good experiences. The process of citizens’ empowerment – especially at the local level – is irreversible”.

The event is organised by the European Commission for International Cooperation and Development (DEVCO) and the European Committee of the Regions (CoR).

La cooperazione decentrata europea sotto i riflettori del CoR - Partecipa all'evento il 5 febbraio!

"Lavorando con le comunità, in un approccio partecipativo e locale a lungo termine, la cooperazione decentrata ha un grande potere di cambiamento ed è in grado di raggiungere ed influenzare cittadini e istituzioni. Il fatto che - talvolta - non riesca a raggiungere i risultati attesi non è da imputare a metodi errati di per sé, ma è dovuto al fatto che questa rimane spesso sotto-finanziata e con un supporto insufficiente, compreso quello politico, nel medio e lungo termine. "

Questa citazione di Antonella Valmorbida descrive brevemente il concetto centrale del suo libro appena pubblicato, "La cooperazione decentrata in Europa: agire per lo sviluppo coinvolgendo le autorità locali e la società civile". Valmorbida, sulla base della sua comprovata esperienza nel campo, afferma che il continente europeo può essere un vero leader in questa prospettiva, poiché ha basato il proprio sviluppo sull'autonomia locale e regionale.

La presentazione del libro si svolgerà il 5 febbraio 2019 presso il centro di documentazione del Comitato delle Regioni (1° piano, JDE), a Bruxelles, dalle 14:30 alle 15:30, come evento complementare del Forum delle città e regioni per la cooperazione allo sviluppo.
La presentazione non sarà una semplice introduzione del libro, ma sarà concepita come una tavola rotonda, al fine di stabilire uno scambio costruttivo sul ruolo della cooperazione decentrata in Europa al giorno d'oggi e un suo possibile futuro.
Ken Godfrey, Direttore Esecutivo di EPD (European Partnership for Democracy), modererà la sessione, animata da Afef Zaddem, Delegata dell'Agenzia della Democrazia Locale (ADL) di Kairouan, Tunisia, Radouène Bouden, Sindaco di Kairouan e Serena Foracchia, Assessore alla Città Internazionale di Reggio Emilia, (da confermare).

"Non dovremmo essere totalmente ciechi e guardare la nostra realtà solo attraverso le lenti della paura e un approccio catastrofico. L'approccio comunitario ai problemi e il suo valore aggiunto sono una caratteristica della governance degli Stati membri dell'UE e dovremmo essere pronti a condividerlo con i nostri vicini, raccogliendo anche tutte le loro esperienze positive. Il processo di emancipazione dei cittadini - soprattutto a livello locale - è irreversibile ".

L'evento è organizzato dalla COmmissione Europea per la Cooperazione e lo Sviluppo Internazionale (DEVCO) ed il Comitato Europeo delle Regioni (CdR).

Per registrarsi, contattare Francesco Pala a francesco.pala@aldaintranet.org entro il 1° febbraio 2019.
