First Study Tour of European Agencies for Pooled Financing

A study trip to Agence France Locale in Lyon and Kommunekredit in Copenhagen took place from 3 to 5 November 2015, with the participation of representatives from South Africa, Peru and Colombia. The purpose of the trip was to study two agencies for pooled financing for local authorities and to draw experiences for projects to introduce pooled financing in the countries of the participants.
