Political message of Local and Regional Authorities for the World Water Forum


As the World Water Forum is approaching, a preparatory meeting took place in Barcelona on 15th February. Many cities and international organizations from different world regions took part in the meeting. The gathering was organized by UCLG and the World Water Council on the invitation of the City of Barcelona and was aimed at discussing the format and agenda of the Local and Regional Authorities Day and the political messages of the LRAs during the 6th World Water Forum.


After a discussion between the participants, a political message was agreed. This message will be adopted during the General Assembly of the Local and Regional Assembly on 15th March.


You can send your amendments to Céline Dubreuil ([email protected]) and Mohamed Boussraoui ([email protected]) before 2 March 2012 at the latest.
