In a series of podcasts VNG International interviews people involved in the programme Governance of Inclusive Green Growth in Cities (DEALS). Our main question is: what or who makes the key difference at the local level?


VNG International is an expert in strengthening local government in developing and transitional countries. DEALS is a programme to support fast-growing cities in the transition to inclusive and sustainable development. For this transition new forms of cooperation are needed between local government, companies, social organizations, knowledge institutions and funding institutions.


In this podcast (#1) we interview Peter van Tongeren, associated expert of VNG International, working in cooperation with the city of Beira in Mozambique.


The programme is financed by the Netherlands ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Inclusive Green Growth department.
