UCLG World Secretariat COMMUNIQUE – Measures related to COVID-19


Due to the measures that have been proposed by the World Health Organization and the United Nations in relation to international travel and meetings in relation to the outbreak of COVID-19, and in order to contribute to international efforts to contain the virus; the UCLG World Secretariat joins other international organizations in canceling all professional missions abroad for members of the team until the end of the month of March, when the situation will be reevaluated.

We are mindful of our responsibility in following indications due to the very global nature of our work.

We also want to transmit our solidarity with the affected and our support for the authorities and scientists all over the world who are working hard to contain and effectively tackle the virus.

We are confident good coordination, solidarity and following the indications of the specialists will help us overcome this challenge.  

The UCLG Team remains available and as active as ever through all alternative communication channels and excited to continue deploying our work programme in the coming weeks.
