Local and regional government leaders and their organizations have gathered together in the and Global Taskforce of Local and Regional Governments in order to build a joint strategy to contribute to the international policy making debates within the framework of the Post 2015 agenda, Rio+20 follow-up and towards Habitat III.
The new website gtf2016.org not only provides key information and resources on these processes but also highlights the main milestones and messages of the Global Taskforce.
The structure of the website is organized around three highlighted sections: “About”, “What We Stand For” and "Messages" but also contains other sections such as upcoming events on the Taskforce's activity.
Coming next will be an event at the ECOSOC Chamber at the UN in New York on 13 December. The Session “Sustainable Cities; Key to Sustainability and Development” will be the occasion to advocate for a greater role for local governance and urbanization in the SDGs. 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.
