December 12-14, 2011
This peer to peer learning workshop on Improving Municipal Revenues, took place in Budapest and was the first in the City to City dialogue series on Municipal Finance. Along with the technical discussion, local governments engaged in an exercise of financial self-assessment for benchmarking. This exercise entailed the use of a template/framework which would help municipalities to: a) collect key baseline data and provide a snapshot of the financial situation of each municipality; and b) determine key target indicators to track and improve performance. Audience included cadres from selected municipalities and representatives of local and cross-border municipal associations.
