As a global alliance that champions decentralization and inclusive development, the Local Public Sector Alliance aims to organize itself in an inclusive and participatory manner, including by supporting platforms for knowledge sharing and policy dialogue at the regional and country level.
As such, the Local Public Sector is pleased to announce the launch of the LPSA Expert Working Group on Asia. The Expert Working Group will be jointly co-chaired by Madhavi Rajadhyaksha (OPM India); Rachana Shrestha (ADB); and Peter Yates (The Asia Foundation).
