Exchange of experience among local government practitioners
CLGF promotes the exchange of experience and information between spheres of government and with partner organisations who work with local government to:
promote greater understanding of local government trends
share experience, innovation and good practice
help member local authorities to deliver better services and governance
develop policy recommendations..
It does this through the bi-ennial Commonwealth Local Government Conferences, symposia, workshops and meetings of senior practitioners and its major publications such as the Commonwealth Local Government Handbook..
