Local authorities on the front line

12 March 2012

Local authorities play a great role in the 6th World Water Forum. A first step was made during the last forum with the approval of the Istanbul Pact for Water. 950 local governments already signed it. It aims at reaching target objectives based on an action plan, supported with indicators. The Pact will be at the center of the 3rd international conference of local and regional authorities organised on 14-15 March by the World Water Council and United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG). This process aims at mobilising local authorities, acting together to strengthen their role in water governance, and to speak with one voice to the international community. Almost 350 representatives from local authorities from all continents will participate.
