This first Political Dialogue in LAC will take place in sessions co-organized by GSEF and the Organization of United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG) during the 19th Conference of the International Observatory of Participatory Democracy (IOPD) to be held in Iztapalapa, Mexico.

The event aims to achieve a better understanding of the role of the SSE in current development frameworks; create networks with new members and potential partners in the Latin American region and promote SSE and its important contribution to the SDGs localization and achievement; provide a space for debate and mutual learning of experiences towards sustainable and inclusive local development through SSE; and promote the upcoming GSEF2020 Mexico City.

Alfonso Cotera, Technical Secretary of RIPESS Latin America and the Caribbean, and moderator of the RIPESS LAC advocacy working group, will speak in one of the sessions to offer a perspective of the actors of the LAC SSE.
