- A matter of democracy
As we close the books for 2013 we conclude that it has once again been a year of transformation. Worldwide events have re-written the agenda, we see trends moving towards more of concern for inter-government relations and the role of local governments as part of decentralisation oriented support. And as a company we have grown in confidence in what we are doing and how we are doing it – and the importance of it.
Our Annual Results capture some of what we have seen, experienced and achieved during 2013.
We have experience from projects in more than 30 countries and know-how of how to adapt our approaches to different local conditions. Browse through our project database in order to see how we apply our methods and tools.
