Registration for training on SDGs and Decentralized Cooperation in Latin America is now open.

Registration for training on SDGs and Decentralized Cooperation in Latin America is now open.

The main objective of the module is to facilitate the training of trainers on localizing the SDGs and decentralized cooperation (DC). To this end, it is based on the realities of local governments, associations and organizations involved in decentralized cooperation, and takes into account their experiences, challenges and good practices. In turn, it functions as a didactic guide and learning tool in the training of new trainers and proposes a new integrated approach to DC aligned to the framework, principles and goals of the SDGs.

The module also provides a basis for learning actions, possibly workshops in which officials, local and regional leaders and other stakeholders are trained on a topic and thus become more aware of the central role that CD can play for local governments and their respective associations. The expected outcome is that after attending a workshop using the „training of trainers“ approach, participants will be able to offer their own training activities.

The program is aimed at civil servants who already have a knowledge and understanding of local government procedures related to cities or other administrative levels. The module has been expressly designed to stimulate reflection on how the key principles of the 2030 Agenda can help improve local planning processes
