Local, regional and metropolitan governments’ voices are to be heard in the debate on international governance and sustainable development. Metropolis, as the world association defending the interest of metropolises, supports the advocacy work undertaken by United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG) and ICLEI as Local Authority Major Group Organizing Partners in the Rio+20 process.
Metropolis, as the Metropolitan Section of UCLG, fully supports the key messages put forward by the organization and its advocacy work to highlight the role of local governments in the international debate of sustainable development.

Metropolis will shortly announce the activities it will organize in Brazil during the run-up to the Rio+20 Conference.
