Join us and explore your opportunities throughout the Commonwealth!
The 2017 Commonwealth Local Government Conference provides a unique opportunity for you to extend your influence and reach into the global local government marketplace focusing on the 52 countries of the Commonwealth and beyond.
Local government is at the heart of democracy and delivers key services - such as water, sanitation, education, local economic development, housing, social welfare, town and space planning, environmental planning, and culture and leisure; in short, everything that citizens need to live happy and prosperous lives. Thus it provides a wide market for goods and services from refuse collection to sophisticated data modelling and city planning.
This conference offers a chance to showcase your products, services or good practice to key local government decision-makers including ministers, mayors and council leader/chief councillors and senior managers.
This four-day international conference will bring together top policy makers from the 53 Commonwealth countries and across the world - elected mayors, chief executives, local government ministers, permanent secretaries, heads of international development agencies and many senior stakeholders from the private sector, civil society and academia to discuss a roadmap for local government over the next 15 years. The theme of the 2017 Commonwealth Local Government Conference is Fit for the future: reources and capacity for effective local government. It will look at how local government is being tasked to make the SDGs happen by 2030 as part of their being delivered ‘at all levels. It will draw up a roadmap for local government to be able to take this forward including; supporting democratic norms and good governance; promoting economic growth and sustainable development; and inclusive, safe and sustainable cities and human settlements. Local partnerships, including with the private sector will be a vital part in helping local governments achieve their ambitious targets.
