This is the webpge of 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:

  • https://www.shareweb.ch/site/DDLGN/learningjourneys/learningjourney2020/SitePhotos/Police_04_s2.jpg

    This is a joint learning journey of the Peace, Governance and Equality PGE Cluster. It sets off a process of collaborative learning and exchanges on challenges of engagement in contexts of democratic reversals and long-standing authoritarian contexts, through the lenseses of governance, fragility, gender equality and inclusion. The ultimate goal of the learning journey is to highlight key considerations for an approach to development cooperation in authoritarian contexts that is transformative and effective in advancing the fundamental liberties and human rights of the people.

    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.
