Local Finances - 26.10.2022
Local Finances in Europe – Unlocking investments for sustainable and resilient societiesJoin us on 10 November for our event: Local Finances in Europe – Unlocking investments for sustainable and resilient societies.
This on-site event will take place in CEMR premises in Brussels, 1 Square de Meeûs on Thursday, 10 November 2022 (10.00-15.00)
- Morning (10.00-12.00) : Launch event of CEMR publication ‘Local finances and the green transition in Europe : A decade of local finances – from crisis to sustainable recovery’. This online publication highlights the trends and evolutions of local and regional finances from the aftermath of the financial crisis to the beginning of the COVID pandemic. As part of this report, a specific focus has been given on the green dimension of local finance and the contribution of LRGs in the investments needed to meet the challenges of the green transition.
The launch event of the publication will be followed by a policy debate on the review of the EU’s economic governance framework – in particular fiscal and budgetary rules controlling debt and public investments – and its impact on municipalities, cities and regions.
- Afternoon (13.00-15.00): Policy debate with EU policy makers on revision of EU economic governance framework from the perspective of local and regional governments. This debate follows the adoption of CEMR position paper “Boosting public investment capacities at local and regional level – the opportunity of the reform of the EU economic governance framework” in January 2022, and will come as the Commission is preparing a proposal for the revision of the EU economic framework early 2023. This reform will have important implications for Europe’s ability to mobilise all levels of governance, not only in addressing the macroeconomic and structural scars left by COVID-19, but to strengthen EU economies in the face of significant challenges that lie ahead.

Conference to launch the new SNG-WOFIThe OECD and United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG) are organising an in-person conference to launch the third edition of their World Observatory on Subnational Government Finance and Investment (SNG-WOFI).

The conference will bring together national and subnational governments, international organisations and stakeholders from around the world involved in this wide-ranging project, to present the key findings of the new edition and to discuss current challenges related to subnational finance and multi-level governance, in light of new data and analysis.
CEMR's Finance Spokesperson, Flo Clucas, will take part in the Session 3 on : How can subnational government access to external resources be improved to finance infrastructure investment?
