Abstract Chapter 9 describes the organisation of the Colombian territory and the distribution of regulatory powers among the different levels of government. Despite the fact that the mandates of territorial entities are residual, there are fields in which their powers impact significantly on economic activity. The chapter also introduces different means used in Colombia to advance multi-level co-ordination, such as associations, alliances, and pacts agreed by sub-national jurisdictions. It discusses the need to establish a multi-level dialogue platform and to clarify the roles of sub-national governments in promoting better regulation and the support the central government can provide. The chapter then briefly analyses challenges for and good practices in regulatory reform at the sub-national level. Finally, it provides recommendations to improve multi-level dialogue and co-ordination.
