HIGHLIGHTS FROM THIS HANDBOOK
- Coordinated action across all levels of government (local, regional and national) is essential to effectively promote sustainable development in African cities.
- ICLEI Africa makes use of multiple techniques to foster and improve multi-level governance, which enhances the up- and out-scaling potential of projects and boosts the sustainability of interventions. One way that we achieve this is by establishing platforms for discussion between national and local levels of government.
- National-local dialogues, which are currently underway in Uganda and all other UNA cities, give stakeholders at all levels the chance to discuss their progress, share their successes and identify challenges and opportunities. By creating a space for collaboration and coordination, such discussions allow for the mobilisation of resources and the synchronisation and acceleration of nature-related work.
