Strengthening Local Self-Governance through Community Unions - Main Users / Purpose
|Mayors, councillors, local governments, NGOs, development organisations|
Worldwide political changes have given rise to the necessity to address local demands and the need to bring economic and political systems closer to local communities. On the one hand, economic mobility has led to the creation of supernational bodies to manage the growing economic integration amongst nations. On the other hand, more and more “public” services can be efficiently provided by decentralized (and often private) organizations. Finally, the sheer collapse of central economic systems has been an important impetus for the emergence of regional and local governments in the political and economic process.
