ALDA et UNDP – Art programme signed an important Memorandum of Understanding on 17 July 2013 in Geneva, at the UN Headquarter. The agreement highlights the common features of the programmes, developping synergies in fostering cooperation at the local level between local authorities and civil society, and aims at the development of common projects and strategies.

In particular, a constant cooperation is on going with the office of UNDP in Brussels. Contacts have been established for joint initiatives in Albania and Kosovo where both ALDA and UNDP Art are present. ALDA participated in many events organised by UNDP Art on local development and local governance, using synergies at the community level between local authorities and civil society. Development are seen in Tunsia and Montenegro where actions from both organisations are present. Joint initiatives were organised during the recent Assisses of Decentralised cooperation of the Committee of the Regions in Brussels and ALDA representatives participated in a recent event for the programme Art in Morocco. A joint work will also be possible to enlarge the UNDP Art programme to Eastern Europe by using, in this case, the added value of ALDA and the LDAs.

“There is a great possibility of cooperation with the Association of the Local Democracy Agencies and the Local Democracy Agencies. The approach to development with a territorial, multilevel, and multistakeholder approach has now been recognised as a mail stone from the UN for the future steps of promotion of sustainable development. We are very happy to continue and strengthen this cooperation”, confirmed Mr. Giovanni Camilleri, Global Coordinator of the programme Art Gold UNDP. Geneva Office, who signed the agreement. As for ALDA, the Director Mrs. Antonella Valmorbida states that this is a very important step to anchor our programme to a fundamental stakeholder promoting local governance, citizens’ participation joining local and regional local authorities. “We are proud to be now strategic partners of the UNDP Art Gold and we will make sure that our mission will be further developed and strengthened by this new cooperation”, she concluded.
