Several interventions by the European Union in Uruguay were a reference for the formulation of the project. Of particular note are the "Desarrollo social de las zonas rurales más pobres del Norte de Uruguay (PRODENOR)" -Social development of the poorest rural areas in Northern Uruguay-programme and the projects called "A los ojos de todos: contraloría ciudadana y monitoreo social" -In the eyes of all: citizen control and social monitoring (multi-country project), "Cohesión social y territorial del Eje Rua 7" - Social and territorial cohesion of the Rua 7 Axis and "Cerro Largo Incluye".
The European policies of governance, decentralization and citizen participation were a reference during the project's development.
The experience of the Spanish Federation of Municipalities and Provinces (FEMP), especially with regard to inter-institutional coordination, transparency, citizen participation, good governance and the location of the 2030 Agenda, was a reference during the project's development.
The project has participated in several courses on Open Government organized by the Spanish Agency of International Cooperation for Development (AECID) in collaboration with the National Institute of Public Administration (INAP) and the Ministry of Territorial Policy and Public Function.
The city counsellor Josep Villarreal, from the Barcelona City Council, has been a speaker at the "Seminario Internacional Mirada Ciudadana" workshop, organized by the project.
