Local and Regional Government Network

Cities and local and regional governments have the need for practical solutions to fulfill the citizen’s demand. In this regards, sub-national governments are strong partners and supporters regardless of their development stage. Therefore, learning cannot be conducted alone but has to be part of partnerships with other authorities, academies, associations, international organizations and even private actors.  

Built on the challenges and positive experiences accumulated by our members and partners, the UCLG learning agenda offers a platform where new ideas and methodologies can be tested, and where learning themes are developed, addressing the concrete interest of our members. It will serve to share and disseminate the experiences and knowledge for the capacity building which finally leads to the cooperation between our members and partners.
