UCLG meets to set strategic priorities for 2017 -2019 and localize SDGs

Posted: 19 April 2017


South African Local Government Association (SALGA) President Parks Tau addressed and successfully chaired the first UCLG Executive Bureau statutory meeting this morning as its President since his election in October 2016 in Bogota.

"Over the months since my election, I’ve had the opportunity to get to know my Co-Presidents, as well as to share perspectives with the rest of our network at the UCLG. As you know, this Executive Bureau is my first statutory meeting of UCLG as the President," Cllr Tau said.

The 2017 UCLG Executive Bureau meeting is taking place Madrid, Spain on 18 - 19 April 2017 and is being hosted by Mayor of Madrid, Ms. Manuela Carmena.

Cllr Tau said Ms Carmena's commitment to UCLG and her proposals on promotion of dialogue in cities was a great inspiration.

Cllr Tau spoke about the daunting challenges to link the between local priorities, national structures, regional frameworks and the global agenda as expressed in the Bogotá Commitment, and the international agenda that relates specifically to local governments.

Key to the UCLG Executive Bureau is to reach a consensus on the strategic priorities of UCLG for 2017 -2019 and clarify the “who” and “how” part for implementation of international agenda and localization of Sustainable Developmental Goals (SDGs).

The Executive Bureau comprises of 115 local and regional governments representatives and meets twice a year. It also takes place in conjunction with the first edition of the World Forum on Urban Violence and Education for Coexistence and Peace, taking place from 19 to 21 April, led by the City of Madrid.
