image of Reshaping Decentralised Development Co-operation

Over the last decades, and in line with the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015, cities and regions have played an important part in helping to implement global agendas at local level through their Decentralised Development Cooperation (DDC) activities. This report analyses the evolution of financial flows, emerging trends and innovative paradigms related to the development co-operation of local and regional governments, including but not limited to official development assistance extended by sub-national governments. It promotes a territorial approach to development co-operation and provides policy recommendations to maximise the effectiveness, benefits and outcomes of DDC at all levels, while acknowledging the diversity of approaches, definitions and concepts across OECD DAC countries active in DDC.

A territorial partnership approach to Decentralised Development Co‑operation: The case of Tuscany

This chapter illustrates the case of the region of Tuscany, Italy on a territorial partnership approach to DDC in Lebanon, South Africa, Tunisia, Mostar and Herzegovina territories. This approach entails a direct partnership and collaboration between the region and the LRGs in the partner countries. It is mainly characterised by non-ODA activities, such as peer-to-peer learning, exchange of best practices. This case shows an innovative DDC approach based on the mobilisation of all local stakeholders, including public, private, academia, associations of municipalities, and a strong focus on policy coherence using the SDGs as a reference framework.
