One of the priorities of the 2018-2020 Multiannual Indicative Program for the CSO-LA Thematic Program is to strengthen the role of local authorities in the implementation and localization of the sustainable development goals, following a territorial approach to local development. In order to promote this agenda, DEVCO, through its thematic unit in charge of local authorities (C5), requires technical assistance, namely highly qualified sectorial expertise to provide strategic and operational support to EC staff in EUDs and HQ. The technical assistance team will support the translation of the EC’s vision on local authorities as developmental actors through a territorial approach in EC-supported programs and projects.
