The event is organized by Government of Cabo Verde, the global network of United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG) and its Committee on LED, through the Andalusian Fund of Municipalities for International Solidarity (FAMSI), the Organization of United Regions (ORU FOGAR), the International Labour Organization (ILO), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and the previous host organizations, the Brazilian Service of Support for Micro and Small Enterprises (SEBRAE), and the Municipality and Metropolitan City of Turin. The Forum follows the success of the 2nd Regional Forum of LED for Latin America and the Caribbean, celebrated last June in Cochabamba, Bolivia. The event, which was opened by the President of the Plurinational State of Bolivia, Evo Morales, gathered almost 1,500 participants that over four days discussed how the LED approach can contribute to achieving a more equitable and sustainable development. The Forum is part of an ongoing process which aims at facilitating a dialogue and at promoting exchanges on LED among a wide array of engaged stakeholders, including national and sub-national governments, the private sector, academia and civil society. The event also aims at encouraging concrete cooperation and promoting joint actions that can help landing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development at the local level.  The Forum’s process started in 2011 with the celebration of the 1st forum in Seville (Spain) and continued with the 2nd and 3rd editions celebrated in 2013 in Foz do Iguacu (Brazil) and in 2015 in Turin (Italy) - which offered the opportunity to present the experiences of delegations from over 100 countries and critically review their territorial experiences (click here to read the reports of the past editions of the forum and click here to watch the videos). Considering LED as an important means for implementing the SDGs at the local level, the Forum will provide a space for a critical reflection and it will strive to promote creative discussions on how can we do things differently in order to address rising inequalities and achieve a more just, equal and sustainable development for all. The 4th Forum will aim to explore, specifically, three main thematic areas around LED as a foundation for: integrated and cohesive territories, resilient and peaceful societies in fragile contexts, and sustainable and inclusive economies.  The event will also have a special focus on Small Island developing States (SIDS).

2017-11-09 9:00 AM 2017-11-14 5:00 PM Europe/London Climate Summit of Local and Regional Leaders at COP23 At the 23rd United Nations Climate Change Conference in November 2017, local and regional governments will once again prove they are at the forefront of climate action. They will show their contribution to accelerating national and global efforts. Local and regional governments are strengthening their resolve to curb climate change and prepare for its effects. They will come together during COP23 at the Climate Summit of Local and Regional Leaders to launch key initiatives and strategic coalitions that shape global climate action. The Climate Summit of Local and Regional Leaders on Sunday, 12 November 2017 in Bonn, Germany will be the jumping off point for key partnerships that support implementation of the Paris Climate Agreement. As part of their commitment to local climate action, local and regional governments are forging strategic partnerships with nations and non-Party climate stakeholders. This is an essential part of building an implementation architecture that fosters innovation and science-driven policymaking. The Climate Summit of Local and Regional Leaders is designed to unlock key partnerships, strengthen collaboration between local and regional governments and facilitate direct interaction with national delegates. It will also act as a launch pad for a number of initiatives and partnerships, pushing for swift, effective and integrated climate action at all levels.   The Summit Dialogues, before and after the Climate Summit of Local and Regional Leaders, will shape messages delivered to nations and other climate stakeholders. The Summit Dialogues include meetings, events and interactions with negotiators building up to the Leaders’ Summit, which will lay the foundations for new initiatives, platforms and declarations to come out of Bonn.   For more information, contact cop23.bonn@iclei.org or visit www.iclei.org/cop23 Bonn ICLEI on behalf of the Global Taskforce of local and regional governments

2017-11-16 9:00 AM 2017-11-17 5:00 PM Europe/London Global Conference on Cities and Migration On 19 of September 2016, the Heads of States and Governments and High representatives adopted the political “New York Declaration for Refugees and Migration” which calls for states to consider committing to a unifying framework on all aspects of international migration, integrating humanitarian and development work, and based on human rights. A month after the New York Declaration, UN Member States adopted the New Urban Agenda (NUA), at the Habitat III Conference in Quito, Ecuador. For the first time, a UN commitment fully integrates migration in the strategic planning and management of cities and urban systems while affirming the human rights of all inhabitants, regardless of a migrant’s reasons for moving, length of stay or legal status. The organizers anticipate that the efforts of local governments in this regard will contribute upwards to the national implementation of the NUA. The Global Conference on Cities and Migration aims to combine current thinking around international migration and sustainable urban development in order to contribute to the implementation of the urban dimensions for the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, including, but not limited to, Sustainable Development Goal 11, which has been designed to make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable. To realise this goal, it is imperative to provide migrants with access to basic services, guarantee their rights and promote and facilitate their inclusion and participation to the social, political and economic local fabric in order to contribute to the achievement of this specific goal. Hosted by the City of Mechelen and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation of the Belgian Federal Government, and coordinated by IOM, UCLG and UN-Habitat, the Global Conference on Cities and Migration will be a preparatory event for energizing both local governments’ contribution to developing a Global Compact on Migration and reviewing the status of the implementation of the recent migration-related commitments of the international community.

2017-11-21 9:00 AM 2017-11-24 5:00 PM Europe/London Commonwealth Local Government Conference The Commonwealth Local Government Conference is CLGF's flagship event, held every two years in different regions of the Commonwealth. In 2017 the CLGF conference will be held for the first time in Malta. The conference brings together some 500-600 top local government policy makers, practitioners and other key stakeholders - including heads of government, ministers, mayors and council leaders, senior officials, and partners from development agencies, academia, civil society and the finance and corporate sector. Delegates have a chance to learn about and discuss policy developments, share and learn about innovative practice and solutions to help policy makers and practitioners to improve their processes and services in their own areas. The theme of the 2017 conference is Fit for the future: capacity and resources for effective local government.  The conference programme is available at http://www.cvent.com/events/commonwealth-local-government-conference-2017/agenda-aa1de6ec6d75469b9be8f952bfedd9a6.aspx  Having adequate resources and capacity is critical to enabling local governments to deliver on local needs and priorities and to enable them to play an integral role in responding to national, regional and global challenges. The 2017 CLGF conference will look at strategies for boosting local government’s resource base and capacity to improve performance, governance and service delivery and to ensure it is fit for purpose to meet the demands of the future. It will look at financing mechanisms to support local government in delivering the SDGs and a better quality of life for our citizens, focussing in particular on innovations around fiscal decentralisation, working smarter through new technology, and funding to combat climate change. The recommendations will be shared at the 2018 Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in the UK and help shape CLGF’s programmes and activities in supporting local governments to strengthen their performance and delivery. As part of the development of the programme we will be commissioning a background research paper to look at the issues and explore innovative ways in which local government is responding to the challenges of delivering services effectively as well as responding to global challenges and targets.

2018-02-12 9:00 AM 2018-02-23 5:00 PM Europe/London Training: Fiscal Decentralisation and Local Finance Course Introduction: How a country organises its public finances forms the basis for how local authorities govern priorities in cities, towns and villages. While national governments have the responsibility to design and supervise a system that works, local authorities are challenged to use their often limited resources for delivering better local services.  This course helps you in answering questions such as: How can spending responsibilities and revenue resources be best assigned to the different government layers, taking into account the country context? What are the responsibilities of national government in designing and supervising a system that works? How can sub-national governments be supported to increase local revenues and strengthen financial management? How can local authorities be held accountable by their citizens? You will discuss the assignment of expenditure responsibilities and revenue sources, the design and implementation of intergovernmental transfers, financial accountability, gender budgeting and local government spending and monitoring. Country cases from a.o. Bangladesh, Kenya and Tanzania on intergovernmental transfer will be analysed. You will visit Dutch institutions including the Dutch Ministry of Home Affairs and the Court of Audit of the Municipality of Rotterdam. Learning Objectives This course will help you: Assess and monitor fiscal decentralisation practices in your country; Optimise the different sources of revenue, e.g. taxes, user fees and intergovernmental transfers; Find effective financing structures and partnerships to accomplish most with limited resources; Use revenue and expenditure tools; Increase your insight in financial management and fiscal accountability at the local level. After this course, you will receive a professional certificate of completion from The Hague Academy for Local Governance.
