For 10 years, The Hague Academy for Local Governance has supported local authorities and other actors at the local level in strengthening knowledge and skills to jointly promote stability, economic development and better services for the community. In our training programmes, we offer insights, tools and inspiration for the change processes in their home countries.

On the occasion of our 10th-anniversary conference, an international conference was organised on the 24th April 2018. During this event, we explored with colleagues, experts and partners, how The Hague Academy and other development partners can further improve support for local governance.

In the plenary, trends and challenges in local governance were presented by key speaker Jamie Boex and discussed with an expert panel. This was followed by a presentation of the survey on trends and challenges that was completed by 115 newsletter readers. Please find the visual and interactive presentation of the results here: Sprockler Survey

In the afternoon, workshops on different topics, current practices, challenges, opportunities and lessons learned were discussed with representatives from the academic world, local government, development partners and local NGOs. The practical recommendations from the four workshops are now available.
