Technical cooperation makes it possible to transversalize different municipal departments and increase the added value of local cooperation.
From the FCCD we have launched a work strategy focused on municipal technical cooperation with various tools available to all partner councils. At the request of the Municipalism Commission of the FCCD, and with the support of the Barcelona Provincial Council and Barcelona City Council, as strategic allies, a Municipal Technical Cooperation Program has been designed. It aims to highlight the role of municipalities as actors in international decentralized cooperation.
Technical cooperation makes it possible to transversalize different municipal departments and increase the added value of local cooperation. It is proposed to work to incorporate quality into the direct cooperation of Catalan councils, through the design and implementation of horizontal and reciprocal technical cooperation actions between local public institutions North-South, North-North and South-South.
Technical cooperation is an instrument of foreign policy and an auxiliary tool to promote the strengthening of capacities, institutionality and public policies, through specialized technical assistance provided by Catalan municipal technical staff. In front of the technical and monetary resources, this model of cooperation is based on the municipal technical areas and their capacities and abilities.
