The purpose of this training is to raise awareness, sensitize, build capacities across board and empower local governments with the requisite knowledge, skills and tools on the why, when and how the NUA can be localized at and how to build relationship with national and Civil society Organizations (CSOs) in implementing the agenda. The localization of global development agenda, is in furtherance of the territorial approach to local development (TALD), attainment of objectives of decentralization of development at grassroots level. It is in line with the principle of subsidiarity which is hinged on the principle that public functions should be exercised by governments closest to the people. It will help to boost policy coherence and the integration of economic, social, environmental and governance dimensions in the policy making process.
The essence of this training is to academically support the five days training and peer learning exchange for anglophone Africa members of UCLG-Africa and its Academy.
