ORU Fogar and UNDP Art (United Nations Development Programme’s Articulation of Territorial Networks Initiative) have partnered once again for the IV edition of the Regional Best Practices Award, a competition to reward the best projects implemented by regional public administrations.

The Award is addressed to intermediate governments, namely regions, provinces, and federal states, and it aims to identify exemplary processes or activities with exceptional results in public management, which can be replicated in other regions to improve effectiveness, efficiency, and innovation for the benefit of the public good.

Best practices will be expected to have a direct contribution to the achievement of the 2030 Agenda, be oriented towards improving the citizens’ quality of life and include a sustainability approach.

The jury will have representatives of organisations such as: AEBR, O’Higgins University, Institute of Higher National Studies, RIMISP Ecuador, UN-HABITAT, Florida University, UNDP Guinea Bissau, ORU Fogar and UNDP-Art.   

Award winners will be featured at the ORU Fogar Database of Regional Best Practices, an online collaboration space where experiences can be shared and good government practices co-created.

The call for entries will be open until 31 May 2021 and interested governments can submit their applications in English, French or Spanish through the website of ORU Fogar.
