Event description

Description

On 25 September 2015 the United Nations (UN) General Assembly officially adopted Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development along with a number of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a global, inclusive and transformational path to sustainable human development. Much more innovative multi-level decentralised cooperation, working alongside the global platforms of local and regional authorities, is taking up these global challenges.

The new Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development is giving local, regional and international authorities an exceptional chance to work together on new innovative bases, focusing on human rights and fostering governance on several levels along with territorial development. The transformational nature of Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development propitiates a new decentralised cooperation alliance to implement the Agenda.

Under the strategic partnership PLATFORMA- European Commission - CPMR, lead by the Basque Government, drew up a detailed survey and report, Shaping a new generation of decentralised cooperation- For enhanced effectiveness and accountability, which sets out key factors and good practices. The reflection and specifics provided by the CPMR-PLATFORMA analysis places local and regional authorities at the heart of European cooperation policy, calling for a new European and international narrative in this regard.

The CPMR and the Basque Government, in association with the Committee of the Regions, European Commission, PLATFORMA, UCLG, NRG4SD and representatives of local and regional authorities, are organising this event with the aim to establish a structured dialogue among local and regional authorities, global platforms and European institutions, in order to refocus the decentralised cooperation and the local and regional authorities on the European agenda.
