Governance and Urban Development

The first peer learning event was held by UCLG in partnership with eThekwini Municipality and MILE. It took place on 13-15 June, 2011, in Durban, South Africa.

In particular, it is to promote relevant experiences of Latin American and African cities, to take  a deeer comparison of local contexts and strategies, and to establish new partnership for city to city cooperation.
