The administrations at regional and local level have a specific role in the attainment of EU policies. Public administrations at national, regional and local level are the ones that deliver crisis response, provide services, implement reforms, manage investments and, more generally, manage public spending to create expected social value. They are involved in the implementation of an important part of the EU budget as they implement 70% of all EU legislation, 70% of climate mitigation measures, 90% of climate adaptation policies and 65% of the SDGs. At the same time, most administrative reforms address mainly the needs of the central administration.
The workshop will discuss targeted approaches to improve capacity and capabilities at regional and local level to establish high quality and modern management.
