The triennial Report on Localization GOLD V is now available!


The Report and the Executive Summaries have been officially launched at the UCLG Congress in Durban.

The 5th Report of the Global Observatory on Local Democracy and Decentralization (GOLD V), The Localization of the Global Agendas, was successfully presented in Durban at the UCLG World Congress, on November 14.

The report is the result of a participatory process which brought together the expertise of researchers from different regions, the work and feedback of all UCLG Regional Sections, Committees and partners, as well as the direct contribution of local and regional governments and their national associations and networks. The Report is the outcome of a collective effort by UCLG and its membership, and it marks a new milestone of collaboration and commitment for our constituency as a whole.

The report showcases local and regional governments’ efforts to achieve the global sustainable agendas, and analyses the evolution of institutional frameworks for local, metropolitan and regional governments in each world region.  

The full report (currently available in English only) and the Executive Summaries are now available here.
