This practice-oriented course focuses on strengthening the economic capacity of local and regional communities. Considering the UN’s post-2015 development agenda, this course will explore strategies and tools for local authorities to promote sustainable and inclusive economic growth and decent work for all.

International experts will present strategies to improve local conditions for job creation and poverty reduction. The course will also explore international examples of financing LED-initiatives and best practices in public-private partnerships.

LED in different contexts

During the course, you will learn about different approaches to accommodate the different needs of urban and rural contexts as well as local economic and social development in least developed and post-conflict states. Furthermore, you will become familiar with strategies and tools to support decent work and human rights and include vulnerable and marginalised groups, such as women and youth, in the local economy.
