ddlgn is the thematic network on democratisation, decentralisation and local governance of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation SDC. This site serves a double function. - A: it is a repository of relevant information for members and partners. - B: it is a virtual platform for knowledge exchange and joint learning. The topics covered by the network are divided in four categories:

    This page hosts selected resources on the impact of COVID-19 from a governance perspective. It is a DDLGN space to share about country specific challenges and SDC responses.

    To understand how the SDC addresses and promotes SIB/GRB goals, the Gender Equality Network together with DDLGN initiated a joint learning journey. The overall goal was to learn and examine how socially inclusive and gender responsive budgeting (SIB/GRB) can be strengthened in SDC programmes and projects.

    The overall aim is to capitalize on experience from DDLG programs in fragile contexts through collaborative learning and knowledge sharing, to establish shared understanding on possible approaches and guidance on the planning, implementing and monitoring of DDLG programs in fragile contexts.
