5th World Forum of Local Economic Development

When: 6 - 8 May 2020

Where: Córdoba, Argentina

hereThe V World Forum of Local Economic Development will be held in Córdoba, Argentina, on 6 – 8 May 2020.

This event is part of an open working process, started in 2011, which promotes an international dialogue and experience sharing in Local Economic Development (LED). It provides the opportunity to transform a global alliance of engaged actors into concrete international, national and local partnerships.

Its remarkable potential stems from the large number of diverse leaders and professionals from national and subnational governments, the private sector, academia, civil society and others. They work together to stimulate policies for sustainable local development – to achieve their ultimate implementation on the ground.

The Forum will constitute a platform for dialogue on key issues such as poverty eradication, employment and decent work, sustainable entrepreneurship, multi-stakeholder partnerships, including the involvement of civil society, workers’ and employers’ organizations. Ultimately, it will analyse how the LED approach stands out as an operational and strategic approach to localize the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its Sustainable Development Goals. The participation is free of charge.
