The 4th World Forum of Local Economic Development will be held in Praia, Cabo Verde, from 17-20 October 2017. As a high-level platform for international dialogue and experience sharing on local economic development (LED), it will provide an opportunity to analyze how LED works as an operational and strategic approach to localize the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Under one of the three main thematic areas this year – “sustainable and inclusive economies”, FMDV, UNCDF and DeLoG will co-organize an interactive panel discussion. From different sectorial/institutional perspectives, the panelists will share their experiences and insights on how to localize financing for LED, and how to support local sustainable investment and service delivery in a collaborative manner with international and local stakeholders.
