Emilia Saiz – Secretary General of United Cities and Local Governments – World Secretariat. UCLG is the world’s leading local government body and its members represent over 200,000 local governments worldwide. Emilia is a leading global advocate for the role of cities in development and has been instrumental in raising the profile of UCLG, bringing cities and local governments to the table at events that were previously the domain of central governments, the private sector and civil society only. One example is the United Nations itself where UCLG puts Local Governments on the platform. UNCDF has joined with UCLG to create the coalition for a global financial ecosystem that works for cities and local governments. To close the first season of Capital LoCAST, we discuss the next steps for our coalition.
