Global Taskforce of Local and Regional Governments for Post 2015 Development Agenda

Local and Regional Governments organizations, in their capacity as governmental stakeholders and gathered in a Global Taskforce for Post 2015 Development Agenda and Towards Habitat III, are fully committed to end extreme poverty in all its forms, to reduce inequalities in the context of sustainable development and to contribute to put in place the building blocks of sustained prosperity for all. As the government bodies with much of the responsibility for meeting many of the MDGs and goals suggested for post 2015, we commit to ensuring local and regional governments address these responsibilities and to demonstrating how poverty reduction, prosperity and sustainable development can be combined.
