Cities are at the forefront of human mobility, reducing carbon emissions and fostering social cohesion within diverse urban communities. The world is looking to city leaders to provide ideas and solutions that can be adequately resourced and that work on the ground.
Cities participating in the Mayors Dialogue on Growth and Solidarity highlighted several current and future policy priorities, with two overarching goals.
Inter-city cooperation takes different forms, such as long-term bilateral partnerships and city-level networks. The Dialogue will act as a broker for international partnerships, helping pairs and clusters of cities test innovative approaches to finding solutions for pressing urban challenges and catalyse new ideas, elevating mayors and cities as regional and global leaders.
