UCLG ASPAC JOB VACANCIES 2020
The United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG) is a worldwide association of local governments and the officially recognized voice of local governments by the United Nations. UCLG was established on 1 January 2004 and is headquartered in Barcelona, Spain. UCLG is an amalgamation of the International Union of Local Authorities (IULA), United Towns Organisation (UTO), and World Association of the Major Metropolises (METROPOLIS) set up in Ghent (Belgium) in 1913, in Aix-les-Bains (France) in 1957, and in Paris (France) in 1985, respectively.
Following this unification, UCLG ASPAC was established in Taipei on 14 April 2004, as the new entity of IULA ASPAC. UCLG ASPAC’s Secretariat is hosted by Jakarta Provincial Government. UCLG ASPAC is the largest regional section of UCLG. It has linkages to more than 7,000 cities and local governments and represents well over 3.76 billion people – more than half of the world population – and incorporates economically fast-developing countries such as China, India, and Indonesia.
UCLG ASPAC is the key knowledge management hub on local government issues in the Asia-Pacific region. It promotes democratic local government, supports cooperation between cities, local governments, and their associations, and facilitates programs, networks, and partnerships to develop the capacity of local governments and the associations. Moreover, UCLG ASPAC represents local governments politically within the international community, and with the United Nations and its agencies. It also promotes inclusive societies that safeguard equality, social and economic justice, and sustainable community development.
LOCALISE SDGs Project, financially supported by the European Union and implemented by UCLG ASPAC in cooperation with APEKSI, aims to empower Local Authorities (LAs) and Associations of Local Authorities (ALAs) in Indonesia for enhanced governance and more effective development policies and to promote inclusive and sustainable local development through SDGs attainment. LOCALISE SDGs targets 30 LAs (16 provinces and 14 municipalities) and 5 ALAs (APEKSI, APKASI, APPSI, ADEKSI, and ADKASI).
The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic has shifted the focus of target LAs to respond to, recover and prevent against the pandemic. From July to December 2020, LOCALISE SDGs will focus its activities to increase awareness of the 30 LAs and 5 ALAs on financing and achieving the SDGs under a New Normal.
