The 7th edition of the Forum will be an opportunity to capitalise on the strong international mobilisation as many delegates from "local and regional authorities" will be running a "country pavilion". It is also a chance to meet authority managers as well as public and private operators who could accelerate their local public services and land planning.
This year, our forum will witness an exciting upscaling with the dual focus of local economic diplomacy and sustainable land development, following the COP 21 that took place in Paris last December. An appeal for decentralised cooperation to encourage "life together" at a time when the world is witnessing serious and tangible tensions everywhere, events hosted by different French public sector representatives, focus meetings on demands from overseas authorities, talks by private operators recognised for their expertise... All these subjects and approaches will boost the usefulness of the Forum and the cohesion of everyone involved within their representative bodies!
