Making your development cooperation project a success: PLATFORMA's guide
PLATFORMA has published a handbook on how to make city-to-city and region-to-region decentralised cooperation projects a success! It is intended to help many local and regional governments all around the world.

Access to European funding for development cooperation programmes remains difficult. Many programmes are actually available to towns and regions, but they don’t necessarily know they exist, or often wrongly assume they’re limited to civil society organisations.
PLATFORMA has always fought for easier access to financing opportunities. The practical guide that has been published was conceived in the spirit of this mission.
We have gathered information in order to help elected representatives and local civil servants build solid projects and attractive applications, and we have listed the European programmes that can finance these projects.
Moreover, we have also included useful information on Member States’ funding agencies and multilateral organisations that may be led to work with towns and regions.
We hope this guide will accompany many local and regional governments all around the world, helping them develop their ambitions and strive for sustainable development, as close as possible to citizens’ needs.
This guide is published in English and French but will be soon available in German, Italian and Spanish.
