ALDA is a French-registered association dedicated to the promotion of good local governance and citizen participation at local level in the European Union, its neighborhood and beyond. It is a global alliance of associations, civil society organizations and local governments supporting local democracy and active citizen engagement.
The Association works with members and partners to develop projects that support its mission to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and the 2030 Agenda. During its 20 years of activity ALDA has developed more than 450 projects and reached almost 25 million citizens. Today, it is a wide and consolidated network with more than 350 members from 45 countries, 16 Local Democracy Agencies (LDAs) and 3 Operating Partners (Ops). In addition, in 2017 ALDA launched ALDA+, the benefit corporation owned by ALDA and dedicated to the provision of trainings, ad hoc consultancies and specialized services in all the fields where ALDA has been operating for more than 20 years. Indeed, ALDA+ represents the capitalisation of the experience of ALDA in the fields of local democracy, participatory processes and project-cycle management.
