Welcome to the Local government Community of Practice. This ‘virtual’ community seeks to enable interaction on various gender and governance issues. Ideal for local government practitioners and academia this platform invokes us to learn and share best practices, resources and critical thinking on gender and service delivery across the SADC region to bring us ‘the local government we want’. Members are encouraged to make use of the Local Government Gender Score Card tool that measures the Centres of Excellence (COE) progress in gender mainstreaming and sensitive service delivery. Aligned is a newly developed Local Government Citizen’s Score Card that provides an opportunity for community members served by COE councils to assess and measure council’s progress towards achieving gender sensitive and responsive service delivery. The results from these tools will assist in strengthened policies and development projects that are implemented to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and SADC Gender Protocol Agenda 2030.The future of local government is within our hands.
