“Municipal International Cooperation and decentralised cooperation, partnership, twinning, international local government diplomacy, sister city links, and mutual assistance through capacity-building programmes and international municipal solidarity initiatives, are a vital contribution to the construction of a peaceful and sustainably developed world.”

- Preamble to UCLG Statutes -

In May 2013, the UCLG CIB Working Group published its Policy Paper on Development Cooperation and Local Government. To promote the messages of this paper, seven elected local government officials were asked to bring the findings to the attention of donors, international organizations and national, regional and local governments. This website is dedicated to their work.
