Course: Fiscal Decentralisation and Local Finance

When: 23 August - 5 September 2023

Where: The Hague

Apply by: 14 July 2023

How a country organises its finances, forms the basis for how local authorities govern their cities, towns and villages. Through fiscal decentralisation, local governments have more authority to decide how and where to spend their resources. This enables them to be more responsive to citizens’ needs.

For successful decentralisation, national governments need to design and supervise clear fiscal arrangements that support local service delivery. At the same time, local authorities are challenged to strengthen their financial capacities and use their limited resources in an effective and efficient way.

In the offered course by the Hague Academy, the participants will discuss the assignment of expenditure responsibilities to local authorities, intergovernmental transfers and local revenue sources. Moreover, the course will address principles of financial accountability and transparency, and exchange examples of inclusive and participatory budgeting.
