Commissioner Mimica: “Yes! More civil society organisation and more local authorities are to be engaged into our own programmes…”
In his hearing as International Cooperation and Development Commissioner-designate, Mr Mimica encouraged the contribution of local and regional governments (LRGs) in European development programmes and highlighted their importance in the management of sustainable urbanisation.
Policy Forum on Development: a successful post-2015 agenda must include local governments
