Survey on EU-UCLG Partnership activities
 
We have prepared a survey on the EU-UCLG Partnership activities. UCLG aims at enhancing its monitoring and evaluation capacity in all areas of its work. The opinion of members is critical in this respect. This survey aims to guide the work of the World Secretariat and inspire the leadership towards new initiatives. We warmly invite you to take 5 minutes to answer it.
 
The results will be taken into account for further development of the work plan and will inspire the discussions of the UCLG Retreat and the framework of existing partnerships.
