Main goal

During the programme, ten people were trained on subjects as the principles of vertical and horizontal fiscal decentralisation; the concept of SMART Cities; open data and citizens access to information; the practice of waste management; the different stages of the policy cycle and their relevance to citizen participation; and governance structure and LED policies in The Netherlands.
