The rapid-growing cities of the Global South have major revenue needs to meet urgent spending priorities. However, in many countries subnational governments’ revenue-raising efforts are frequently ineffective, inequitable, and unaccountable  particularly when it comes to property taxation.

Therefore, national and subnational policy decision-makers, representatives of governments, tax administrations, and relevant stakeholders from ATI partner countries will come together with representatives from the Local Government Revenue Initiative (LoGRI) and other experts who will provide technical, administrative, and policy advice on core areas related to effective revenue generation through property taxation.
