Territorial project
management

Over the past few decades, African Local and Regional Governments have been moving towards the delegated management of part of their Local Public Services.

Delegated Management of Public Services (DMPS), as a management and operating mode for Local Public Services, requires the establishment of a favorable environment, particularly in terms of institutional environment, the legal framework, the budget, human resources and, above all, regulation methods. Several points of vigilance have been overlooked or have escaped the local authorities that have opted for this management method.

This training course allows the various actors and stakeholders to grasp and master the concepts, the operating methods as well as the monitoring, control, regulation and evaluation methods. The course is facilitated by an expert of international and African reputation. The course is available in French.

Territorial
coaching

The training « Awareness of elected officials and executives of local and Regional Governments to Territorial Coaching » is carried by United Cities and Local Governments of Africa (UCLG Africa) and its African Local Governments Academy (ALGA). It is designed to meet the needs of African Local and Regional Governments for a sustainable development through the synergy of actors.


The pedagogical approach of this training is based on the asynchronous distance learning model and on the opportunities offered by the digitalization of training. In addition to the contributions of senior coach-trainers, this training is also based on practical exercises, presentation of the tools of Territorial Coaching and its approaches, tests and testimonies of territorial actors… It integrates skills in coaching of organizations and groups and skills provided by the territorial engineering. It aims to train the elected officials and the actors of the Local and Regional Governments of Africa so that they can be familiarized with the Territorial Coach’s activity, its contributions for a good governance of territories and to apprehend the global stakes of the territorial dynamics.


Through the planned modules, the aim is to accompany a real transformation and an integration of the actors in the processes of change. The involvement of the elected officials and the actors of the Territorial Collectivity is a determining factor since it must support the development of inclusive approaches allowing to create the conditions of confidence to make the territorial actors, the real engines of the change. The role of the Territorial Coach at this level is to encourage exchanges, to impulse a synergy and to create a favorable climate by putting forward specific, concrete and operational tools.

Participatory
Budgeting

This introductory course, Discovery Journey to Participatory Budgeting [PB] in Africa is composed of three interconnected modules, each of them addressing specific objectives.

In summary, the course intends to:

– Strengthen learner’s capacities to differentiate among different types of PB, identify their benefits and their limits, in order to be better equipped to make an informed choice to start up a PB or to introduce cutting edge innovations in those already existing.
– Explore existing contributions of PB to the deepening of democracy, the enriching of decentralization and the attainment of Sustainable Development Goals from the local level in Africa.
– Identify keys actors and players in a PB process, including the central role of citizens and civil society as well as elected local governments and civil servants

Unfolding the modules

– Module 1: PB basics and overview intends to provide a critical understanding of PB from a conceptual, historical and empirical perspectives. It unpacks the multiple dimensions of PB to take into account and PB basic principles.
– Module 2. PB as a contribution to sustainable development and participatory democracy focuses on the actors and their relations and the conditions to increase such contributions.
– Module 3. PB in practice, provides tools and methods in a hands-on perspective, addressing questions such as: how to start a PB? how to implement PB cycles, starting with the proposal and the selection of projects [cycle 1] followed by the implementation of voted projects [cycle 2]? How to address the common risks of PB interruption and to turn them sustainable through time?

A unique dimension of the course: a discovery journey

Beyond being both conceptual and practical it provides exposure to diverse African PB experiences in cities, districts and counties from each of the continent’s region, highlighting their specificities and their innovative contributions such as original governance models tailored to local realities and resulting from PB process; wealth and employment PB projects not that common elsewhere; deepening of democracy and decentralization through PB; mechanisms of social inclusion, or increased citizens control tending to curb down “financial leakages” and mismanagement .
