Upcoming Webinar: Who does what? Functional assignment challenges and how to address them

by Alicia GONZALEZ-GARCIA -

This DeLoG webinar will provide a discussion on how to effectively assign functional responsibilities in multilevel governance systems. It will take place on 19 May 2022 from 11:00 am to 12:30 pm (CEST).



Taking the publication ‘’Emerging Practices in Intergovernmental Functional Assignment’’ by Rainer Rohdewohld and Gabriele Ferrazzi as a starting point, this webinar  will bring together different perspectives on the challenges concerning functional assignments in decentralised governance systems. Besides giving concrete examples from Cambodia and Rwanda there will be a space for open exchange on the effects of functional assignments on local governments in different contexts and its implications for development cooperation. Special attention will be given to whether and how functional assignment reforms can open space for local or subnational governments engagement, underlining developmental actors’ responsibility to design context-specific strategies and approaches.

Enhancing Digital Skills in COVID Times

Following the pandemic, many network institutions were forced to transform their face-to-face or blended training activities into a fully online modality.  This move to fully remote training & learning implied several changes, including upskilling or reskilling their staff to be able to teach and learn online. These skills are undoubtedly a key building block to ensure meaningful and quality learning.


In this session, ITC-ILOIIEP UNESCO and GIZ will share their experience-enhancing digital skills, their success stories, challenges and lessons learned. After a plenary presentation, participants will be invited into breakout rooms for further discussion and will have the opportunity to tell their own story and share their views and experiences.

When: April 26th 2022 | 2 P.M. (CET)

Where: Online (Zoom)
