  1. Strasbourg 31/07/07 Strasbourg 05/06/07 EUROPEAID Non-State Actors and Local Authorities in Development WTD: WORKING TOGETHER FOR DEVELOPMENT

  2. Non-State Actors and Local Authorities in Development Strasbourg 31/07/07 Strasbourg 05/06/07 • Summary • -This programme succeeds both the NGO co-financing programmes and the decentralised cooperation programmes; • The added value of associating various NSA lies in their independence from the State and their ability to bridge a critical gap between strategic goals and their practical realisation. • -It is chiefly implemented in countries and regions where geographical programmes do not provide for any financial support for NSA or LA owing to weak political commitment, in subregions out of reach of the country programme or in situations of difficult partnerships, fragile States, post-conflict, political instability, etc.

  3. Non-State Actors and Local Authorities in Development Strasbourg 31/07/07 Strasbourg 05/06/07 The programme foresees three objectives: Objective 1 – In country operations (in country envelopes, multi country action):Actions which strengthen participatory development, support capacity development processes for the actors concerned at country or regional level, and promote mutual understanding processes; Objective 2 – Development Education within the EU and acceding countries: Awareness raising and education for development in the EU and acceding countries

  4. Non-State Actors and Local Authorities in Development Strasbourg 31/07/07 Strasbourg 05/06/07 The programme foresees three objectives: Objective 3 – Coordination: coordination and communication between civil society and local authority networks, within their organisations and between different types of stakeholders active in the European public debate on development.

  5. Non-State Actors and Local Authorities in Development Strasbourg 31/07/07 Strasbourg 05/06/07 Cross-cutting objectives The primary cross-cutting objective of this programme is the eradication of poverty in the context of sustainable development, including pursuit of the Millennium Development Goals (MDG).
