We are pleased to confirm that local government leaders and networks from around the world will gather in Quito on 16th October 2016 for the third session of the Second World Assembly of Local and Regional Governments, convened by the Global Taskforce, in order to provide inputs to the Habitat III Conference.

You will find in the links below a letter of invitation from Mr. Mauricio Rodas, Mayor of Quito, Host of Habitat III and Co-President of UCLG, and from Mr. Kadir Topbaş, Mayor of Istanbul and President of UCLG, who believe your inputs to these important events will contribute to making them historical, increasing their success and impact on the urban agenda negotiations and bringing our agenda forward.

This session is the last of a three session process:

  • First session: 15th May, New York
  • Second session: 14th October, Bogotá, in the framework of the UCLG 5th World Congress
  • Third session: 16th October, Quito

Please make sure to save these important dates in your agendas.

For your information, you will also find a briefing note on the first session of the Second World Assembly, to be held in New York.

A more detailed programme of the activities for local and regional governments in Quito will be provided soon. In the meantime, we invite you to visit the UCLG Congress Website for updates on the UCLG Congress and World Summit of Local and Regional Leaders, which you are warmly invited to attend as well.
