Description

Municipal cooperation on planning and service delivery is often advanced as a means to strengthen local government and address fragmented governance in metropolitan and other regions. If municipalities could work together, we could improve efficiency, lower service delivery costs, achieve better outcomes, and provide an alternative to municipal mergers. But, is municipal cooperation a panacea, or is it just a convenient solution to address some immediate problems?

On June 14, the Institute on Municipal Finance and Governance (IMFG) and the Forum of Federations will convene a panel describing how municipal cooperation is used in three countries – Australia, Brazil, and Canada – and evaluate how well it works.

Speakers

Constantino Cronemberger Mendes, Country Director (Brazil), Forum of Federations
Graham Sansom, Visiting Scholar, Institute on Municipal Finance and Governance
Zachary Spicer, Visiting Researcher, Institute on Municipal Finance and Governance
Rupak Chattopadhyay, President and CEO, Forum of Federations (Moderator)
