[Euro-Latin American Alliance for Cooperation between Cities (AL-LAs)]
 
In an increasingly urbanized world, a paradigm shift is required in order to ensure a sound collaboration between local authorities and the international community, with a joint decision-making process and more inclusive dialogues.
With the economic support of the European Union (through its foreign policy instrument), AL-LAs is facilitating the process “A seat at the global table: Local governments as decision-makers in world affairs”, aiming to contribute to, enrich and complement the work undertaken by the Global Taskforce to advocate internationally for the strengthening of local governments and its networks in the New Urban Agenda.
