Today, we were pleased to host an Online Peer Review and Exchange between the Association of Ukrainian Cities (AUC) and peer Local Government Associations from our Network.

During the event, the directors and senior management of NALAS member LGAs exchanged with AUC on their current priorities related to:  

  • Interactions with Government: challenges and opportunities, institutional mechanisms for coordination and cooperation, good practices, solutions and ideas; and
  • Advocacy and Lobbying: lessons learned and recommendations to strengthen AUC’s institutional organisation, efforts and activities for advocacy and lobbying at national and international level.

The exchange was vivid and resourceful and AUC benefited from the rich experiences of NALAS members in positioning local governments and protecting their interests.

Besides NALAS members, we were happy to solicit inputs from our friends from the Latvian Association of Local and Regional Governments, Association of Local Authorities in Lithuania, French Association of the Council of European Municipalities and Regions, VNG, CEMR and the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of the Council of Europe.

The event was organised in partnership with CEMR PLATFORMA.
