ALDA is extremely proud to make part in the Anna Lindh Virtual Marathon for Dialogue with the project “Cross Border cooperation to strengthen the decentralisation process in response to the Covid-19 Crisis”.

Indeed, the whole month of June ALDA and its trainers have been engaged in the delivery of trainings and capacity buildings on advocacy techniques and communication tools to French and Tunisian civil society organisations.

The trainings were held respectively by Antonella Valmorbida, ALDA Secretary General, and Elisabetta Uroni, Head of the Communication Department of ALDA.

Support Tunisia in addressing the problems encountered during its decentralisation process.

While the overall objective of the project was to shed light on the different roles of stakeholders in decentralisation, paying a particular attention to the part played by the State in these kinds of processes, the trainings aimed at providing local organisations with tools and knowledge to promote decentralisation and democratic principles in their local context.

As a result, the associations involved will have to launch an advocacy campaign through short video pills promoting democracy, rule of law, conflict resolution and culture of peace.

As mentioned, the reason of this action was to support Tunisia in addressing the problems encountered during its decentralisation process. One of the priorities, indeed, is to clarify the role of the State in the whole process of decentralisation, since many municipalities gave up the process because of political conflicts and lack of interest and involvement.
