Local tax and revenue generation must play its part in financing sustainable development.

It is at the local level that coherent policies can be developed to address the multiple challenges of poverty reduction and sustainable development.

Local governments are in the ideal position to encourage and facilitate partnerships between public bodies, the private sector and civil society in our communities.

Local governments have been collaborating internationally for over one hundred years as part of the international municipal movement. We are ready and willing to take a seat at the global table.

Reliable local data will be an essential tool to monitor sub-national variations in progress and in targeting resources to make sure that no- one is left behind.
