The city of Sousse in Tunisia will hold on September the 22nd and 23rd the 4th Forum of Local and Regional Mediterranean Authorities, organized by the Mediterranean Commission of UCLG. That Forum kicked off on 2008 with the original idea of creating a meeting point for local and regional authorities, where they can freely discuss either on the socio-political and economic situation. Moreover, the Forum strengths the role of local and regional authorities as development agents all over the Mediterranean world.
Therefore, within that framework on 9th May, the Mediterranean Committee of UCLG will organize in Barcelona a meeting of Monitoring Committee to coordinate de Forum of Local and Regional Authorities of the Mediterranean. Also, the Committee on Decentralisation and Local Self-Government of UCLG was invited to participate and debate over several issues as regional diplomacy, migratory flows, local and regional finance and territorial development.
