The Committee on Local Finance of UCLG is working on a cross-cutting study to sharpen its advocacy on local finance in preparation for Habitat III.
The study of each of the components above-mentioned proceeded along the same methodology, starting with a literature review aiming at bringing out the key issues, based on well-documented examples of cities and countries.
This phase is now completed; each expert has produced preliminary versions of their reports that highlight the main conditions for each financial instrument to be implemented effectively and efficiently.
Details on the three reports:
- Land and real estate valuation, by David Albrecht, with the contribution of Vincent Renard and Claude de Miras
- Access to long-term external resources, by Matthieu Collette
- Local finance and recurrent local revenue, by Guy Gilbert
The study is coordinated under the supervision of a steering committee made of a team of experts, international financial and technical partners: the French Development Agency and the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
