Training for local and regional authorities
In a context of increasing decentralization and changing modes of governance, Mediterranean local authorities (equivalent to French Regions, Departments, Municipalities) are faced with complex territorial issues: climatic, social, health and economic of an unprecedented scale. One of AVITEM’s missions is to support elected officials, technical executives and administrators of institutions. Through the development and facilitation of seminars and training workshops, AVITEM works to strengthen the capacities of local authorities and government services by training elected officials and local executives. The common thread of these training courses is the territorial project at all scales and in all its dimensions. The entire project-process is addressed, from the construction of a concerted political and technical vision to the implementation of projects through the development of strategies. Governance is analyzed from a project perspective. The territorialization and spatialization of the project are important components of these trainings.
