Urban GLASS (Global-Local Accountability Support System) Initiative


UN-Habitat and the Spanish Federation of Municipalities and Provinces (FEMP) are launching an initiative to support local government in preventing corruption in urban management by promoting transparent, accountable and participatory cities. The project is being developed under the Uraía Platform, by the Global Fund of for the Development of Cities (FMDV) www.uraia.org
The initiative aims to strengthen the capacities of local governments to develop and implement mechanisms for transparency and anti-corruption in urban settings, fostering the necessary conditions for the fulfillment of Sustainable Development Goals 16 and 11. The scope of work will include capacity building, development of tools, advocacy and the promotion of partnerships and networking. The project will take specific consideration to the enormous potential of technology and will foster the development and use of SMART technologies as a tool to include citizens in the cities’ affairs. The organisers are looking for partners and donors to contribute to the country activities.
