Fiscal Decentralisation in the Eastern Partnership – challenges and opportunities



The conference ‘Decentralisation in the Eastern Partnership – challenges and opportunities’ will discuss the challenges and opportunities for fiscal decentralisation in the Eastern Partnership countries. Fiscal decentralisation is a crucial element in the reform process in the Eastern Partnership countries.

The Conference of Regional and Local Authorities for the Eastern Partnership (CORLEAP), the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of the Council of Europe (CLRA) and the Eastern Partnership Civil Society Forum (CSF) have identified Fiscal decentralisation as one of their main priorities.

Most of the EaP countries have undertaken some level of fiscal decentralisation reforms, but these reforms are far from completed and further steps are needed to undertake a more comprehensive fiscal reform and ensure adequate resources for efficient and competent local government.

What are examples of good practice and the challenges of fiscal decentralization in the EaP countries? Where can experience from the EU and candidate and potential candidate countries lead the way? What kind of proposals could be made in the light of a revision of the Roadmap on fiscal decentralisation?

Finally, the aim of the conference is to provide greater visibility of the fiscal decentralisation process in the EaP countries. The discussion can also inform the debate of CORLEAP and the report CORLEAP will submit to the 3rd Eastern Partnership Summit of Heads of State and Government in Vilnius in November 2013.

The conference will take place on 14 May 2013, 9:00 – 13:00, at the Committee of the Regions, Rue Belliard 99, Brussels - Room JDE 70.

ALDA will be represented by its Director Antonella Valmorbida, EaP Civil Society Forum, Subgroup on LGPAR, and by its Senior Policy Officer Peter Sondergaard,  EaP Civil Society Forum Subgroup on LGPAR
