Municipalities that take part intend to boost their partnerships by using expert support to develop sustainable solutions to local problems.
They are willing to make a commitment and contribute resources of their own. This means that the staff of the German municipalities should have both the time and the interest to collaborate with the experts and support their work. The German municipality does not incur any costs as a result of the expert assignment.
Although the experts are largely funded through the FKPW programme, the partner municipality in the Global South may – depending on the model selected – incur costs. They should also be willing to meet further costs for the workplace.
The FKPW will be glad to advise interested municipal partnerships on the services offered by the programme.
You may submit a declaration of interest at any time. The objectives and tasks described in it need not have been finalised. Changes may be made and further details elaborated as the FKPW team advises the partner municipalities.
