Africa Day on Decentralization and local Development

10 August 2012, the African Union (AU) is celebrating the first edition of the Africa Day on Decentralization and Local Development. Adopted during the January 2012 Summit, the Day aims not only to remind all Africans living on the continent and in the Diaspora of the importance of decentralization in the edification of Africa, but also of the important contribution of local governments in the development of African Union Member States and the territories therein. In celebrating it every year, the Day should afford State and non-State stakeholders the opportunity to focus special attention on the challenges engendered and the opportunities afforded by decentralization and local governance.

This first ever edition of the Africa Day on Decentralization and Local Development is being celebrated under the theme : “financing decentralization, public services delivery and local development “.
