Countdown

The Summit will enable us to promote the recommendations, practices and experiences of local and regional authorities and ensure they are brought to fruition. In the run up to Habitat III, we want to make the 5th Congress a leading political moment and a space for meeting and exchange among local and regional elected officials from all over the world, as well as among all of the communities that make up the global local and regional family.

Kadir Topbaş

President of UCLG, Mayor of Istanbul

After the achievement of the COP21 Paris Agreement, it is our duty to collectively shape up an ambitious and solutions-oriented agenda for Habitat III. Mayors and local leaders will be, once again, in the front line to face this global challenge.

Anne Hidalgo

Mayor of Paris, Co-President of UCLG

The outcomes of Habitat III are crucial for all local and regional governments. The New Urban Agenda not only affects big cities, it should also address the challenges of medium-sized cities and the rural-urban relationship. We from small island states know well how important that balance is! I look forward to discussing these issues in Bogotá. 

Jacqueline Moustache-Belle

Mayor of Victoria, Co-President of UCLG

Local governments have to help improve the lives of citizens and, in order to do this, we need clear competences and new governance mechanisms. I await you at Habitat III in Quito to present this and other messages emanating from our summit in Bogota.

Mauricio Rodas Espinel

Mayor of Quito, Host of the Habitat III Conference

Local and regional governments are on the front line when it comes to responding to any type of crisis, natural or man-made. As the sphere of government closest to the people, (...) we have both a legal and moral obligation to act. The Bogotá Summit will be a cross-cutting global meeting where the international community will be asked to include the local dimension and to support us to foster solidarity and peer-to-peer collaboration.

Ada Colau

Mayor of Barcelona
