Bilbao’s IV Master Plan for International Cooperation

ECOPER has been commissioned to lead the design of the Bilbao Municipal Government’s 4th Master Plan for International Development Cooperation. The design process will be participative and the new plan will reflect the lessons learned during the evaluation of the 3rd Master Plan, which was carried out by ECOPER this year. Workshops will be held to discuss the strategic focuses of the new plan, along with regular consultations with the Municipal Government’s cooperation team and other relevant actors within the government.

The 4th Master Plan will cover 2021 to 2025 and will include reflections on the third plan and the current position of Bilbao’s development cooperation activities within the framework of the UN 2030 Agenda. It will then outline the focus of Bilbao’s cooperation activities in the coming years along four main strategic lines. It will also incorporate a series of indicators and a monitoring system, which will facilitate the annual review of the plan.
