It was an excellent beginning for the initiative, which has the dual aim of celebrating ALDA’s 20th anniversary and providing a platform for ALDA members to share expertise, know-how, good practices and -why not?- doubts and questions, too; we are happy to announce that the episode is now available online in the ALDA Talks playlist of our YouTube channel.
The second episode, “Environmental Governance: Main Challenges and Best Practices” will take place on January 23rd and will be presented by experts from the Municipality of Lousada (Portugal), an ALDA member that has recently received the “Transformative Action Award”, which is assigned for European sustainability and organised by ICLEI World Secretariat – Local Governments for Sustainability, the Basque Country, and the City of Aalborg (Denmark) with the support of the European Committee of the Regions and the European Investment Bank.

UNDP Turkey, ALDA+ and the EU together for transparency and accountability

In the framework of the project “Local Administration Reform Phase III”, ALDA+ is leading a week-long, tailor-built technical study visit focused on transparency and accountability which will take a number of key Turkish stakeholders from Ljubljana to Vicenza, Rome and Milan.
The project, implemented by UNDP Turkey and funded by the Union européenne, aims to ensure effective, inclusive, accountable and participatory local governance in Turkey, and involves UNDP experts and a group of high ranking officials and experts representing the Ministry of Interior, the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization, the Union of Municipalities in Turkey and various Metropolitan Municipalities.
Accompanied by ALDA staff, the project team will conduct the study visit in Slovenia and Italy to learn about enhancing transparency and accountability in their daily services through a comparative assessment of the practices of these EU member states and the provision of recommendations on the development of a secondary legislation on the topic.
The objective is for the Turkish delegation to not only acquire in-depth knowledge on how the matter is tackled in the EU, but also develop and strengthen partnerships and networks between Turkish and EU local authorities.
This will be reached through a variety of activities in the course of the week, which will go from January 19th to 25th and consist in an integrated programme of training sessions and in-field visits with various Municipalities and other entities – such as the Commission for the Prevention of Corruption of the Republic of Slovenia, the Italian Department of Public Administration, Transparency International, Avviso Pubblico, the Lombardy Region and the Municipalities of Ljubljana, Novo Mesto, Schio, Milan.
A networking lunch buffet will take place on Wednesday, January 22nd with ALDA representatives and ALDA members, too: this will be a great occasion to present the Association’s mission to the Turkish delegation and better get to know each other, and we are very much looking forward to it!

Inclusive dialogue for effective social policy in Georgian municipalities

The “Inclusive Dialogue for Effective Social Policy” project was implemented in Georgia with the aim to improve the social service delivery system et develop better need-oriented social policies through inclusive cooperation and dialogue with the local self-government in the Zestaponi and Baghdati municipalities of the Imereti region.

Four social programs were created based on the needs identified as a result of the focus groups implemented within the framework of the project: the autism spectrum rehabilitation program; the economic support program for large families; and two home care programs.

Le autism spectrum rehabilitation program, developed in the Baghdati municipality, focuses on improving the social functioning of autism spectrum children in Baghdati through early diagnosis and support of the rehabilitation process. A home care program was also set up here to help increase the quality of life for those who are most in need in Baghdati, through the provision of medical care.

In the Zestaponi municipality, the economic support program for large families was created to support micro-small businesses or expand existing ones, and just like in Baghdati a home care programwas also established to provide home care services to disadvantaged people.

In addition, social policy documents were elaborated for both municipalities outlining the vision and the ways of achieving social programs and improving the quality of delivery system in 2020-2024. These and both Baghdati projects were discussed and approved in the Baghdati 2020 social budget project by the City Council of the Baghdati Municipality; while, as for the Zestaponi Municipality, the social policy document was discussed and reviewed by the municipal health and social issues commission, and the programs will be considered and approved at the nearest council meeting in 2020.

“Inclusive Dialogue for Effective Social Policy” is a project by the Agence pour la démocratie locale Géorgie with its delegate Nino Khukhua (pictured) in partnership with ‘’Women for Regional Development’’ and ‘’Teacher’s Union- Education and the Universe’’, with the financial support of World Vision Georgia, Georgian Young Economists Association (GYLA), Georgian Association of Social Workers and the European Union.
