ICLD

ICLD’s Knowledge Centre

ICLD’s Knowledge Centre documents, analyses and disseminates knowledge in the fields of local democracy development and decentralisation.

Linking an Advisory Group made up of international and Swedish researchers to the Knowledge Centre allows ICLD to keep up to date with the latest research findings. The Knowledge Centre acts as a hub where research and empirical knowledge meet and from which they can be disseminated. 

The Knowledge Centre utilises, develops and channels both existing knowledge and expertise when it comes to local democracy, local self-governance, and decentralisation, and that which is developed within ICLD’s various operating spheres. The Knowledge Centre is, furthermore, tasked with maintaining and disseminating the know-how and empirical expertise derived from the municipal partnerships and international training programmes. 

ICLD also organises seminars and conferences within the framework of the Knowledge Centre.

In an analysis, ICLD provides an overview of the organisation’s activities that are linked to the 2030 Agenda.

Good learning experience for visitors from JB Marks

They’re very ambitious, they have multiple goals, and many of their challenges are shared. When Växjö and JB Marks Local Municipality from South Africa talk about municipal partnerships, the strategic objective ranges across the entire Agenda 2030 map.
“We’ve created a project focus that will give us opportunities for collaboration. What we now need to do is build support for and formulate a project application,” says Annika Ström of the Institute for Local and Regional Democracy (ID).
