In 2017/2018, the ICLD followed up on two municipal partnerships to see how they were
working with issues related to accountability in local government. The report aims to convey key findings from these partnerships that can be of interest to other local governments.
The two partnerships chosen for this follow-up were two long term partnerships which have directly worked with local politicians and good governance:
- Växjö municipality, Sweden and JB Marks Municipality, South Africa
- Gävle municipality, Sweden and Buffalo City, South Afric
This is the last of four reports focusing on one of the ICLD’s core areas as part of the ICLD’s internal quality assessment (IQA). Previous reports focusing on participation, equity/inclusion and transparency in local government can be found on the ICLD website
