Building Better Futures by Strengthening Democratic Local Governance
VNG International are experts in strengthening democratic local government in developing countries and countries in transition. Local governments play a key role in the provision of basic services including water, waste management, health care and housing. They have a profound impact on areas such as safety, food security, rule of law and women’s rights. This is how our projects contribute in a sustainable way to better futures for people, communities and countries.
For us, capacity building of local governments implies change at individual, organisation and macro-level, and may involve knowledge, skills and/or attitudes. Depending on the specific context, and in dialogue with the stakeholders, we define which mix will be the most effective. This also relates to working at the technical and/or political level of local governments.
Our approach is hands-on, practice oriented, empowering people in existing structures instead of stepping in and taking over responsibilities
We can have 3 types of vacancies:
- Jobs in our Home office in The Hague
