PLATFORMA is the network of local and regional governments for development cooperation between Europe and partner countries. Because today’s and tomorrow’s global challenges are best tackled at local level, and citizens of towns and regions worldwide face the same daily issues, working together at the local level makes sense. Thousands of European towns and regions have partnerships with their counterparts within Europe and across Africa, Latin America and Asia-Pacific. Such partnerships focus on supporting local democracy and improving the lives of local communities: better governance, waste collection, access to school, water treatment, climate change, public lighting, health care, gender equality or economic development. In each project, the local and regional government partners join forces and work together with civil society and all other stakeholders to identify the problems and find the best solutions. www.platforma-dev.eu @platforma4dev
