THE WORKING GROUP
Fons Català de Cooperació al Desenvolupament (FCCD) is a nonprofit organization of public interest which is composed of more than 300 municipalities and other local institutions in Catalonia. FCCD manages a fund for the promotion and implementation of decentralized cooperation initiatives. FCCD is member and chairs the Confederation of Funds for Cooperation and Solidarity in Spain.
Due to its experience and distinguished trajectory, FCCD is a current point of reference in political debates over local issues, decentralized cooperation and participatory democracy. The FCCD has also pioneered the design, execution and implementation of co-development projects. The FCCD has extensive experience within the framework of co-development. Over the past 15 years FCCD has carried out multiple co-development projects in different geographic areas worldwide. Its broad experience in this field of action as well as its direct link with local governments allowed FCCD to start an initiative like this, a Working Group on Migration and Development Cooperation within a broad local network worldwide as it is the United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG) Organization. This initiative represents an opportunity for sharing critical readings and experiences around the concept of co-development. This is also an opportunity to identify and define strategic lines on migration and cooperation which will be useful to local government actors of migration, both recipients and issuers.
