Participation in SDC’s collaboration with Centres of Expertise in Democratisation, Decentralisation and Local Governance

The Basel Institute has begun work on a mandate for the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) to provide support over a period of four years to the SDC DDLG thematic unit on a variety of good governance and related projects.

This work is conducted through a consortium led by the UK’s Institute for Development Studies (IDS) with the Basel Institute, XImpulse and the Hirondelle Foundation as participating members.

Currently, experts of the Basel Institute are developing a foundation course on governance for SDC staff and supporting the drafting of a policy paper that will synthesise SDC’s approach to this topic.
