National Associations

CEMR National associations strive to empower cities, municipalities, counties, provinces, and regions by ensuring they possess a strong and respected voice within the national government. National associations seek to shape and drive the political agenda on issues that matter to their members. Through advocacy and campaigning efforts, these associations enact changes in policies, laws, and funding allocations on behalf of their members. On top of this, they engage in national policy dialogues, bridging the gap between central and local governments.

Being a natural repository of information coming from the grassroots, CEMR members:

  • provide data for their members, the national government, and other stakeholders
  • bring solutions to nationwide challenges
  • serve as permanent platforms for their members to exchange experiences and share good practices and effective service delivery.
