Handbook 11: Multi-level engagement
Improving national and local working relationships through dialogues in Uganda

City officials cannot act alone to effectively protect and revive urban natural assets and ecosystem services. Similarly, national officials cannot successfully implement countrywide policies or meet international commitments set out in global frameworks like the Paris Agreement and the Aichi Biodiversity Targets without support from cities. Hence, in order to tackle climate change, resilience and biodiversity conservation head-on, local, subnational and national governmental bodies should ideally work together and synchronise their strategies and activities. In essence, multi-level governance is key if we are to effectively promote sustainable development in Africa.
