WTD - Interactive session on multilateral decentralised cooperation at EDD 2013
On 26-27 November 2013, ALDA participated to the European Development Days, an event organized by the European Commission, gathering all main stakeholders involved in development cooperation.
In collaboration with UNDP Art Initiative, and with the Polish Region Lower Silesia, we organised an interactive session on multilateral decentralized cooperation in the framework of the project WTD - Working Together for Development.
Speakers and animators of the table discussions were Francesco Bicciato, ART Programme Advisor, United Nations Development Programme; Bartłomiej Ostrowski, Head of Unit for International Cooperation and Projects, Marshal’s Office of Lower Silesia, Poland; for ALDA, Marco Boaria, Resource and Development Unit Coordinator, and Irene Zanetti, Communication Officer.
Around 50 people attended and gave birth to lively discussion on the advantages of adapting a territorial cooperation approach in the framework of development cooperation as one of the main tools to reach the MDGs and to shape the post-2015 debate, and worked to develop “guidelines” on how “local actors” (LAs and CSOs) may better contribute to development cooperation.
