Is Municipal Cooperation a Silver Bullet? Experience from Australia, Brazil, and Canada
June 14, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
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, 2018, the Institute on Municipal Finance and Governance (IMFG) and the Forum of Federations assembled a panel evaluating the strengths and challenges of inter-municipal cooperation on planning and service delivery programs in three countries – Australia, Brazil, and Canada.
