Don’t forget to sign up to participate in the annual forum of the European platform of local and regional authorities for development cooperation (PLATFORMA), to be held in Brussels from 4 to 5 March: the deadline is set for 22 February 2013!.

The forum will be an opportunity for local and regional elected representatives in Europe, EU partner countries and European decision-makers to debate on a number of questions, including:

In today’s crisis-ridden context, what innovative methods can be applied to further decentralised cooperation?  What kind of partnerships can be established between local and regional authorities and the European institutions in the framework of the 2014-2020 EU development programmes?  What impetus is there for the action of local and regional governments in fragile states?  What commitments can the EU make to meet the expectations of local and regional authorities in the field of development cooperation?

The forum will also mark the launch of a publication on development effectiveness from the perspective of local and regional governments.

Speakers will include: Fatallah Oualalou, mayor of Rabat (Morocco), president of the Northern African section of United Cities and Local Governments of Africa; Oldřich Vlasák, vice-president of the European Parliament, executive president of the Council of European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR); Maiga Aziza Mint Katra, deputy mayor of Timbuktu; and Alfonso Polanco, mayor of Palencia.
