A Mayors Dialogue on Growth and Solidarity: reimagining human mobility in Africa and Europe

2020 - Overview of cities’ priorities and emerging partnerships


Avery Grayson, Amy Leach, Gemma Hennessey, Marta Foresti




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.

  • First, encouraging inclusive and sustainable urban growth, both in the more immediate recovery from Covid-19 and in the longer term.
  • Second, enabling social inclusion and access to services for all residents regardless of status, with a particular focus on vulnerable populations.

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.
