Presentation of the Action Plan 2020 of the UCLG Committee on Social Inclusion, Participatory Democracy and Human Rights (UCLG CSIPDHR)

The UCLG Committee on Social Inclusion, Participatory Democracy and Human Rights (UCLG CSIPDHR) is pleased to share with its members and partners its Action Plan for 2020. This document provides a framework for strategic articulation for the initiatives and actions led by members and partners of the Committee in a wide variety of thematic areas, including human rights and the right to the city, but also emerging topics in the global agenda for 2020, such as women rights, social and solidarity economy or the localization of the 2030 Agenda. This Action Plan will be presented next week at the UCLG Annual Retreat, which this year will be held in the Moroccan city of Tangier (February 24-28).

In 2020, local governments gathered in the framework the UCLG CSIPDHR will strengthen its strategy focused on promoting the right to the city and human rights within the framework of UCLG - the world organization of local governments. They will do so in connection to ongoing networking process, such as global advocacy towards the UN Human Rights system or the organization of the tenth edition of the World Human Rights Cities Forum. The Committee will support related local government initiatives, such as political debates, learning events, knowledge exchange or field visits. These events bring together local governments, civil society partners and academia. In parallel, the Committee will foster once more its partnership with the Global Platform for the Right to the City.

Our members thematic focus on areas such as the right to housing and the local governance of migration will also be strengthened, thanks to previous partnerships with local and global stakeholders and projects like the UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Housing or the MC2CM Project. The UCLG CSIPDHR will equally seek greater articulation with emerging issues in the global agenda for 2020 – such as fighting urban violence and promoting peace culture, developing women rights in the city, localizing climate justice or fostering new partnerships on social and solidarity economy. This articulation will build on priorities established by the UCLG Congress and its local government membership after 2019.
