participants in Rwanda's multi-level governance dialogue

National-Local Dialogues

UrbanShift's National-Local Dialogues facilitate communication and coordination across levels of government within a country to promote constructive and supportive approaches to climate action and integrated urban planning.

The UrbanShift National Dialogues aim to stimulate communication and enhance coordination between different levels of government and across relevant departments. The dialogues facilitate constructive discussions on national policies for sustainable urban planning and financing, resulting in improved multilevel governance. Cities can also network and build relationships with other cities and national government representatives at these dialogues. The UrbanShift team will organize two National Dialogues in each of the nine participating countries. These one-day events will be modeled on the Talanoa Dialogue approach and conducted in the national language of each country.
