This assessment report draws on SCN engagement to date across the region, including through the SCN Regional Practitioners’ Workshop in Durres, Albania. It is further informed by recent research and policy analysis conducted by partners and other organisations, institutions and individuals, and is designed to augment and provide local context to existing threat assessments and activity overviews. To this end, it looks specifically at how regional trends tie in to, or are driven by, localised dynamics; what locally-focused initiatives exist and how they operate; and the role of cities and municipalities in delivering, coordinating and/or owning local responses and prevention measures. It concludes with a set of recommendations on how cities and municipalities can continue to develop their role and what support they require from governments and the wider international community.
