The first session of the UCLG Executive Bureau for 2015 will take place in Porto Alegre from 10 to 12 June 2015
The way forward for the preparation local and regional governments’ contributions to the Habitat III process, the recommendations for the Financing for Development Conference, updates on the outcomes of the Post-2015 process and the Climate Change Summit will be on the agenda.
The Bureau will be informed of the peer-to-peer exchanges carried out among members and of the efforts made to strengthen the network and the UCLG membership in different parts of the world.
