Our Training and Knowledge Services

LDP draws from long experience in perfecting appropriate capacity development methodologies for local authorities. The programme offers particular expertise in creating demand-driven, highly customized learning products designed to achieve the learning needs of diverse beneficiaries with the following training

  • Seminars, Conferences, Knowledge Fairs and Short Courses,
  • CityShare Workshops,

A large part of the Local Development Programme's face-to-face training workshops, conferences and CityShare Workshops are delivered through The CIFAL Network. The CIFAL Network was created under the programme in 2002 to ensure strengthened partnerships and knowledge networks with local governments for a more effective dissemination of relevant learning and delivery of accessible training across the globe. Today, there are nine International Training Centres for Local Actors (CIFALs) located in host cities and institutions throughout the world.
