Case studies on local finance

Case studies and best practices

The Global Observatory on Local Finance, hosted by UCLG, in partnership with the OECD aims to: - Share information on local and regional governments finance and structure, based on a broad statistical study on the state of local finance in 101 countries representing 82% of the world population and 87.5 of the world GDP. - Present local and regional governments with tools adequate to financial means and capacities. - Raise the international profile of UCLG members and contribute their perspective to global debates on financing development and supporting fairer distribution of national revenues; - Promote dialogue and partnership between local governments and national governments, international institutions, and academics. On the website, you’ll find the flagship report Subnational Governments around the World, Structure and Finance, as well as publications dedicated to local finances, country profiles summarizing the situation of local governments in 101 countries, financial instruments implemented in cities around by local governments, and a digital library.
