With the “Action for MDGs” project, cities and municipalities should be supported in the implementation of a local development agenda. The project partners wish to facilitate networking between the local authorities as well as to foster an exchange of experiences and good practices. One further goal is reinforcement of the role of local authorities in development policy issues on the European level.

Local Authorities acting for the MDGs: Europe for more development
Every single one of us can contribute to greater global equality!
Cities and municipalities make a decisive contribution to the resolution of global problems. As the interface between the national and European levels as well as the local population, they can instigate positive changes. As the local administrative level, local authorities afford the necessary expertise, and are responsible for the economic and social infrastructure as well as for the urban planning and development. They are closest to the citizens and their needs, and can raise awareness for sustainable change processes among the general public. Local authorities therefore actively contribute to attainment of the MDGs.
The EU project will contribute to the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals. It should help to better integrate development issues into the work of local authorities. Together with the cities of Munich (DE), Nuremberg (DE), Tirgu Mures (RO), Ostopovice (CZ), Nagykanizsa (HU) and the long-term partners Action Solidarité Tiers Monde / Climate Alliance Luxembourg, Climate Alliance Austria, Reflex Hungary and other partner organizations from Romania and the Czech Republic Climate Alliance (European Secretariat) will develop a wide range of materials and activities both for decision makers and citizens.
