SKL International was founded as a subsidiary to SALAR in response to a high international demand for practical examples of Sweden’s local self-government. SKL International supports the development of local government systems in developing countries and countries in transition.
At the heart of SKL International’s services is the knowledge of Sweden’s uniquely decentralised public sector, as well as a vast experience of decentralisation in various countries and contexts. SKL International builds its assistance on an indepth understanding of the potential for development and is always adapted to the local context.
SKL International projects are typically associated with decentralisation reform and are often located in countries undergoing transitions of defferent kinds. The organisation has developed an extensive international experience in areas like local democracy and governance; local and regional development; decentralisation policies; support to local government associations; European integration related services and training; and capacity building related to these areas.
