2.2 MOST FAVOURABLY EVALUATED PROPOSALS

GCP II. On National and Local Territorial Governance

GCP 09. The State should be considered as a link in the chain of governance: the role that the State should play in development can no longer be considered as a strictly national issue. We must abandon the idea of absolute sovereignty which is now obsolete. The activities of multi-national corporations, transnational trade and the economy on which international delinquency is based are evidence against absolute sovereignty. There is a difference between State representation and reality. (31.01.)

GCP 10. The State is inadequate and essential at the same time, because issued are no longer considered in terms of national intervention but in terms of adjustments between territorial hierarchies because of the difference between the scale of the problems (increasingly global) and the scale of competences (national territory, where democracy is exercised) (Transborder co-operation on a regional scale between different countries, world-wide environmental regulations). (31.03.)

GCP 11. At each level of public representation, the accumulation of mandates must be strictly limited or directly prohibited. In keeping with this same spirit, the renewal of a mandate must be established as an exception which can only be justified with an “exceptional” balance. (Article suggested by a participant for proposal 04.)

GCP 12. The State is no longer the only responsible public institution that affects public interest. The State is not the only regulatory agent. The activities of a large number of private organisations affect the public field (multinational corporations, NGOs, etc.). It is also true that some States, under the influence of private groups, are not working towards the common good. Therefore, there is an urgent need to judge the private sector and the NGOs by their impact and not by their objectives. The public and private sectors are not opposing, but complementary, forces. (31.04.)

GCP 13. The State continues to be essential with regards to solidarity and the redistribution of wealth. If the State abandons its role as entrepreneur, it is with a view to reviewing major social infrastructures: national solidarity, education, redistribution of wealth, health care, education. It should co-operating and establishing a real dialogue with civil society and with the agents in different fields. (31.05.)

GCP 14. Development can not be purchased: it is based on experience, personal abilities, learning and knowledge. Development does not only imply building modern infrastructures, industrial units and effective telecommunication systems. Development is based primarily on the mobilisation of the population and the assessment of its potential within a long-term global vision. Positive development experiences have shown that anchorage to the past and local experiences related to external activities create innovation-oriented dynamics. These processes function when they are supported by the State. (31.06.)

GCP 17. It is useful to evoke the experience of the participatory budgets which are a very interesting advance in the direct involvement of the inhabitants in directing city affairs. But there are many other experiences which must be the source of learning and several method elements to adapt them to the very different and complex realities of the different countries. (Article suggested by a participant for proposal 05.)

GCP 18. Make exchange fluxes inside and outside territories transparent and discover indicators that are more reliable than the GNP.

  • Draw up eco-balances for all consumed objects and materials.
