DeLoG Webinars on "How the Covid-19 Crisis Challenges Resilience and Functionality of Multi-level Governance Systems in Asia"
In September the DeLoG Secretariat together with the Asian Development Bank (ADB) will offer two webinars to explore the implications of the Covid-19 crisis on multi-level governance systems in the Asia-Pacific region.
These webinars have been organised in partnership with the ADB, the Local Governance Initiative and Network (LOGIN) Asia and German Development Cooperation (GIZ). Panelists will include representatives from several ADB-Developing Member Countries, ADB-staff, academics and the OECD.
The webinars are scheduled for 2 and 10 September 2020, at 02:00 pm CEST (08:00 pm Manila time).
The first webinar (2 September) on “Policies and Strategies Post Covid-19: How to strengthen Multi-level Systems in Asia” will look at policy and strategy challenges for Asia’s multi-level systems. Moreover, it will explore how the political, fiscal and administrative features of multi-level systems can be improved to cope with the medium-term impact of Covid-19. The implications of the pandemic for realising the 2030 Agenda in the region and for efforts to localise the SDGs will be considered as well.
Online registration for this webinar is now open.
The second webinar (10 September) on “Coping with the Crisis: Multi-level Systems in Action” will discuss practical experiences of different countries in the region in responding to the Covid-19 situation, looking in more detail at the respective roles and mandates of each level of government and the effectiveness of existing mechanisms and processes of coordination and communication between levels of government.
Online registration for this webinar is now open as well.
