United Nations Pact for the Future: A Seat for the LRGs
On 22-23 September 2024, the United Nations will organise the Summit for the Future where the UN Pact for the Future should be adopted. This document aims to better prepare our multilateral systems for the current and future challenges. It is also a great opportunity for our constituency of Local and Regional Governments (LRG) at the United Nations to advocate for strengthening LRGs engagement in intergovernmental processes. As of today, the document is still being negotiated between the different members of the UN.
In collaboration with UCLG and the Global Taskforce of Local and Regional Governments, CEMR is an advocation for supporting a reference in Chapter 5 of the UN Pact for the Future on “Transforming global governance” to “strengthen the engagement of local and regional authorities in United Nations intergovernmental bodies and processes”.
To support this initiative, the CEMR President, Ms Gunn Marit Helgesen has already sent four letters to:
  • The President of the European Commission;
  • The President of the European Council;
  • The High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy;
  • The EU Ambassador to the UN in New York (where the Summit of the Future will be held).
In addition, to strengthen our impact and maximise our chances of securing that the aforementioned reference is included in the final draft of the Pact for the Future, all CEMR members have been invited to send a letter on their behalf to their respective Ministry of Foreign Affairs and their permanent representation to the United Nations in New York before the end of June.
For more information about how to get involved in this advocacy action please get in touch with CEMR Attaché to Secretary General Martin Ravault
