The Forum of Federations runs training and knowledge sharing programs to address governance challenges in existing and emerging federations, as well as in devolved and decentralized countries.

The Forum helps to:

  • find common ground among diverse ethnic groups
  • improve resource and tax sharing arrangements
  • enhance public service delivery
  • develop strategies to improve intergovernmental cooperation

The Forum has an unparalleled global network of experts which can be rapidly tapped to provide expert counsel and support for countries tackling governance issues.

We work globally – in the Americas, in Europe, in Africa, and in Asia-Pacific. Our headquarters are in Ottawa, Canada, and we have field offices in Kathmandu, Nepal and Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Currently the Forum runs programs in over 20 countries.
