Global Taskforce of Local and Regional Governments, UN Habitat and Local and Regional Government's Forum : 2019
This report summarises the discussions of The Local and Regional Governments’ Forum and the Local 2030 Special Event at High-Level Political Forum 2018. These events were an opportunity to present the key priorities of local and regional governments during the 2018 HLPF – the right to housing, localization of financing, gender equality in local decision making, multilevel governance, the focus on intermediary cities, the need to develop territorial cohesion and accountable institutions were all presented as instrumental areas of action that need to be addressed locally to solve global problems.
