Fighting poverty with democracy
We are convinced that the battle to eliminate poverty worldwide starts here at home – in our village, our town, or our municipality. Which is why, here at ICLD, we work with people who are changing the world by building local democracy.
What we do
Municipal Partnership Programme
ICLD promotes the exchange of knowledge and experiences between local authorities in Sweden and in partner countries.
International Training Programmes
Our programmes are aimed at decision-makers (politicians and officials) in our partner countries. Some of the programmes also target the voluntary sector.
ICLD documents, analyses and disseminates knowledge in the fields of local democracy development and decentralisation.
Covid19 – Corona
ICLD is monitoring the development of Covid19 closely, and following the updates from Public Health Agency of Sweden, WHO, and recommendations from the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Due to the ongoing global situation, we have postponed workshops to protect the safety of participants. Latest information on this issue.
