UCLG officially joined the UHC2030 initiative to achieve universal health care and progressed the proposed Lampedusa Charter, which aims to shift the narrative on migration to a human rights-based approach to mobility.
Summary of the 2021 UCLG Executive Bureau Meetings
The Earth Negotiations Bulletin (ENB) will be reporting from the 2021 United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG) Executive Bureau meetings. The meeting is convening virtually under the theme, “Care at the heart of local service provision for an inclusive recovery,” from 18-20 May 2021.
The meeting includes thematic sessions, a high-level policy dialogue, and an annual meeting of the UN Advisory Committee on Local Authorities (UNACLA). The thematic sessions will address:
- A renewed role for local and regional governments in development cooperation: towards a new UCLG Policy; and
- From managing migration to a community-based approach to human mobility: towards the Lampedusa Charter.
The high-level policy dialogue is expected to consider inclusive digitalization, and healthy people and territories leading our wellbeing.
ENB Meeting Coverage will provide daily web updates of the key interventions in the thematic sessions, the high-level policy dialogue, and the UNACLA annual meeting, as well as a summary report following the closure of the Bureau meetings. The summary report will be available on this site on Saturday, 22 May 2021.
