The Norwegian Ambassador underlined important conditions for strengthening local governance, drawing on experiences from Norway and Kosovo.

Ambassador Per Strand Sjaastad gave a lecture about local governance in Norway at the KLGI academy 28 March with Director Besnik Tahiri. The Ambassador underlined that “it is widely agreed that there is a need to make the local level and the municipalities better equipped to meet the challenges that lies ahead, related to demography, welfare, education, health, competence and business development, and the ability to develop good and attractive communities. A sound financial base and flexibility are conditions for efficient municipalities and providing quality public services.”
