UCLG CIB Working Group
Capacity and Institution Building (CIB) Working Group
The UCLG Working Group on Capacity and Institution Building, chaired by Peter Knip, Director of VNG International the Netherlands, builds on a practitioners tradition within UCLG´s founding organisations. The Working Group brings together professional practitioners from Local Government Associations (LGA) and individual local governments active in the field of Municipal International Cooperation (MIC) and Association Capacity Building (ACB) programmes. The committee serves as a technical resource base for political committees of UCLG, and is linked to the Committee on Decentralised Cooperation.
Exchange and coordination of programmes
The CIB Working Group aims to discuss and exchange information on developments in MIC and ACB programmes, in order to enhance the quality of this work, and to coordinate activities and programmes in order to avoid overlap and duplication of efforts. This website details the focal areas of MIC and ACB programmes of CIB members and contains a compendium of key tools and publications.
