Between 2 and 4 April 2019 the Association of Local Government Authorities of Somaliland (ALGASL) organized an Inclusive Local Economic Development Workshop for Local Political Leadership which took place in Berbera district. 11 districts were invited to participate in the training under the ASPIRE program. The primary target groups of the training were district political and technical staffs, the local government association itself and the economic forum of Berbera (BEF).
During the workshop the districts developed an LED Action Plan which is based on the Territorial Approach to Local Development (TALD). Point of discussion were collaboration modalities and the importance of stakeholder analyses, leadership and good management. Districts are now put to work to implement the actions they identified.
