Municipal Development Cooperation

The project "Coordination of municipal development policy" in Dortmund, funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, focuses on strengthening the SDGs at the local level. Through various events, networking and the establishment of development policy dialogues with the different groups of actors in Dortmund, the aim is to realize the SDGs and make them more tangible.

A One-World-Strategy is to bring together already existing municipal strategies and contribute to their implementation. Furthermore, raising awareness of North-South connections and globally responsible action as well as establishing and expanding partnerships with countries of the Global South are main tasks within the project. Another focus of the project is on global supply chains and the identification of sustainable alternatives.
