MCLD does not currently have any independent MCLD National Associations — instead it coordinates with locally-led development working groups within European-based INGO networks, including Bond (UK), Concode, Dóchas (Ireland), Fingo (Finland), Forus-International (France), ICVA (Switzerland), the ICS Centre (Germany), Partos (Netherlands) and Venro (Germany).

In addition, MCLD coordinates with UCLG – United Cities and Local and Regional Governments based in Barcelona.
