RECOV 3rd international conference: conclusions and recommendations

The 3rd international event within the RECOV project took place in Lisbon, Portugal from October 21st to 23rd, 2019. The conference was entitled “Innovative and sustainable financial instruments for local governments”, with a special focus on EU rules and mechanisms and on new sustainable financial instruments for Public Administrators (PAs) in response to the economic crisis.

The event aimed to debate the financial instruments that allow municipalities to be more inclusive, and to deal with the economic crisis thanks to the involvement of citizens and collaborative actions. Its purpose was to bring together international participants working in the field of public financing in order to answer how the new sustainable financial instruments for PAs are responding to the economic crisis.

This two days’ international occasion was structured around a number of thematically-focused sessions during which participants presented their work and had the possibility to learn more about the topic. 

This event was organised by the Clube intercultural Europeu in coordination with the European Association for Local Democracy – ALDA, and the RECOV project is financed through the programme Europe for Citizens.
