COOPERATION


Creation of Bissau City Committee on Development Cooperation and City Diplomacy

The Committee on Development Cooperation and City Diplomacy of Bissau City was created in November 2017, being the result of the merger of two previously existing committees: the Decentralized Cooperation Committee and the Committee on City Diplomacy, Peace building and Human Rights. The merger took place as a result of the close relation of the topics and activities of the two Committees and in order to react to the need within Bissau City to work towards a more compact governance structure. The Bissau City members of the Committees agreed to set up a joint work plan, in which also important aspects of the Millennium Development Goals are included.
