• Transparency
• Possibility to demand accountability
• Citizen participation

Municipalities, County Councils, Regions and regional Local Authority Associations in Sweden can apply for municipal partnerships together with a partner in of the following countries:

Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Moldavia, Serbia, Turkey, Ukraine, Belarus, India, Indonesia, China, Vietnam, Botswana, Kenya, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia.

It is your responsibility to find an eligible and suitable partner. However, the MPP team is always willing and available to advise you if needed!
