Description

The Community Forum of Local Governments Associations will be divided in two dedicated sessions: one for exchange among CEOs representing LGAs and the other one for dialogue among Presidents of LGAs. The idea is to allow participants to meet their counterparts to broaden their own network and to hear about different realities, including relations with other stakeholders, advocacy approaches, the integration of international networks into their domestic agenda, as well as to set out the priorities for the World Organization.

2nd segment: Discussion among CEOs on governance issues of their LGAs.
 
Directors and Secretaries of the Associations of Belgium, Brazil (FNP and CNM), Canada, Colombia, France (AFCCRE), Germany, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Serbia, South Africa, Sweden, Turkey, Ukraine, United Kingdom
