First 2019 Course to Focus on Fiscal Decentralisation and Local Finance

Fiscal Decentralisation and Local Finance will be the Academy’s first open course in 2019. Designed with the practitioner in mind, this course will introduce the four pillars of fiscal decentralisation and discuss relevant tools for income generation at the local level.


As a participant, you will analyse fiscal decentralisation in your country, receive tools for managing local finances and explore possibilities for public-private cooperation.

The course is intended for professionals charged with designing and implementing (fiscal) decentralisation processes, public sector reform programmes, public service delivery or financial management. Individuals working for the national, regional or local governments, or donor and development organisations will find the course especially relevant.

This course addresses the following questions, among others:

  • How can fiscal relations between national and local authorities be improved?
  • How can local authorities raise their income and finance basic services for the poor?
  • And how can citizens actively help set spending priorities and hold their governments accountable?
