What is EUDEL?

The Association of Basque Municipalities (EUDEL) was founded in 1982 in order to support the towns´ autonomy and represent their interest at other institutions.

Association of Basque Municipalities EUDEL is formed by the towns of the Basque Autonomous Region, some of Navarre´s towns and some towns of the County of Treviño.

Since its foundation more than twenty years of ago, EUDEL has become a reference of the Basque confederation of municipalities. The Association of Basque Municipalities has set itself up as a valuable and efficient interlocutor towards the rest of institutions regarding the coordination and consensus of public policies.

EUDEL has based on a structure called "net within a net", that´s to say on a net of autonomous field that includes local structures. Hence, it has been created as an autonomous association that defends the 18 year-old autonomy of Basque town councils.

The Association of Basque Municipalities is aware that town councils are important institutions, and therefore, more than being a framework to exchange services, EUDEL has been created as a great asset to fulfil varied functions. In this sense, it is outstanding EUDEL´s capacity to achieve political agreements.

Besides, the Association of Basque Municipalities is an autonomous association and this fact allows the organisation to have its own criteria as well as a projection that is worldwide recognised.
