The Danube Governance Conference: Towards European integration with the SDGs was the final event of the program '''Building Administrative Capacities in the Danube Region and Western Balkans (BACID)''', co-funded by the Austrian Development Cooperation and implemented by the Austrian Association of Cities and Towns and KDZ Centre for Public Administration Research. <br />
At this occasion we would like to gather stakeholders with whom we have been cooperating in the past years to discuss the topics identified as priorities in improving governance in the countries of the Region on the way to European integration and how the Sustainable Development Goals support this process. Besides ministries, local governments, NGOs and other organisations from the Western Balkans, the event will bring together our partner public institutions and private organisations from the whole Danube Region, as well as representatives of the EU and international organisations that are supporting European integration and public administration reforms in the Western Balkans and the Republic of Moldova.<br />
 
Our partners are invited to present their challenges and achievements and discuss possible solutions to be further developed through future collaborative activities.<br />

About the Conference

The Danube Governance Conference: Towards European integration with the SDGs was the final event of the program Building Administrative Capacities in the Danube Region and Western Balkans (BACID), co-funded by the Austrian Development Cooperation and implemented by the Austrian Association of Cities and Towns and KDZ Centre for Public Administration Research.

At this occasion we gathered stakeholders with whom we have been cooperating in the past years to discuss the topics identified as priorities in improving governance in the countries of the Region on the way to European integration and how the Sustainable Development Goals support this process. Besides ministries, local governments, NGOs and other organisations from the Western Balkans, the event brought together partners from public institutions and private organisations from the whole Danube Region, as well as representatives of the EU and international organisations that are supporting European integration and public administration reforms in the Western Balkans and the Republic of Moldova.

Our partners were invited to present their challenges and achievements and discuss possible solutions to be further developed through future collaborative activities.

Structure of the conference

  • Opening with the status of EU integration of the Western Balkan countries followed by a panel discussion on local government responses to the COVID-19 crisis in the Region.
  • Keynote on localizing and measuring the SDGs in the City of Riga.
  • Parallel Sessions with an inner circle of speakers from partner organisations discussing the given topic (participants were able to join in the discussion via chat or video).
  • Expo booths with presentations of organisations and BACID Fund projects.


In the afternoon breaks there was a chance for selected projects to be in the spotlight. In 30-minute slots BACID Fund grantees and other partners presented their projects live to the audience.
