Thank you to Michelle Bachelet, outgoing Executive Director of UN Women

The UCLG Standing Committee on Gender Equality would like to express its gratitude to the outgoing Executive Director of UN Women Michelle Bachelet.

Under her leadership, UN Women has strengthened the ties with the wide network of local and regional governments of UCLG as a key partner in the way towards a more a sustainable and fairer world.

Her acknowledgement of the women Mayors' and Councillors' needs and commitments the world around will certainly help to the recognition of both the importance of gender equality in the forthcoming global development agenda and the contribution of cities and regions to it.
