at the United Nations Headquarters in New York
Mayors, associations of local authorities and international development support organisations will meet to discuss
the future of city-to-city cooperation.
Come, let us hear your opinion or come,
listen to what other practitioners have to say.

Through a new partnership between the Associations of Local Authorities and the United Nations
city-to-city cooperation
may become the international development approach of the future.

Join city representatives who will talk about the benefits of
city-to-city learning and mutual support
and the representatives of international organisations who will talk about the broad range of options for supporting cities in their cooperation.

Participate in launching and reviewing the findings and recommendations of a new publication on
city-to-city cooperation:
issues arising from experience

(advance copies available in Msword and PDF)

Review with us the benefits and bottlenecks
of city-to-city cooperation and help us
chart the way forward
towards a comprehensive inventory, up-to-date data base and web site, and a regular global forum on city-to-city cooperation.
