Local Authorities Kick-Off Meeting

Interviews of the local representatives and water experts

The 30th and 31st of May 2011, Greater Lyon and the Rhone-Mediterranean and Corsica Water Agency hosted the International Kick-Off meeting of the 6th World Water Forum Local and Regional Authorities’ political process.

The main objective of this process: to mobilize local and regional authorities in order to act together and to discuss ways to strengthen their role in water and sanitation governance and to strengthen their voice in the global political debate on water.

Through plenary sessions and parallel workshops, especially showcasing concrete cases, participants brainstormed about objectives, solutions and commitments to be undertaken for the 6th World Water Forum, and this, in partnership with national and international associations of Local Authorities.
