In the framework of the UCLG 2nd Global Report on decentralization and Local democracy, which focuses on the theme of local finances, all UCLG regional sections have been involved in the collection of statistical data on local finances.

This resulted in the demand to develop concrete tools that could help the regional members to build their advocacy strategies and lobbying activities to national and regional institutions.
