The next meeting of the Global Taskforce will take place at the occasion of the special event “Sustainable Cities; Key to Sustainability and Development”. This event is organized at the invitation of UCLG, UN Habitat and the Group of friends of sustainable cities at the ECOSOC Chamber, United Nations Headquarters, in New York on 13 December.
The Session will be the occasion to advocate for a greater role for local governance and urbanization in the SDGs. Ahead of the Open Working Group session on sustainable cites and human settlements to take place from 6 to 10 January 2014 in New York, Political Representatives will discuss the localization of targets and indicators under the future sustainable development goals and call for the adoption of a stand-alone goal on sustainable urbanisation.
UCLG calls upon its members to contribute to this campaign, which has already gathered near 50 signatories among which cities and local governments like Istanbul, Quito, Rabat, Bilbao, Bordeaux, Kazan, Victoria or Région Ile-de-France. We invite you to visit the website: www.urbansdg.uclg.org and join the campaign #urbanSDG!
