As part of its efforts to elevate the debate on decentralization and localization around the world, the Local Public Sector Alliance is in the process of developing a number of online courses on topics related to decentralization and local governance.

Our first short course, Decentralization: Why and What? , developed in partnership with The Hague Academy of Local Governance, is now available online–free of charge. This course provides an introduction to decentralization and localization by identifying the importance of the topic to global development and by establishing a common vocabulary on topics related decentralization and multi-level governance.

Please check back, as additional online courses will become available in the coming months.
