Annual retreat 2021 of the Geneva Cities Hub

On 10 December 2021, the Geneva Cities Hub will hold its Annual strategic retreat. This year, the retreat will focus on the role of local and regional governments (LRGs) in the Universal Periodic Review (UPR, a State-driven process involving a review of the human rights records of all UN Member States).

On that occasion, the GCH and invited partners will discuss ways and means to concretely support the involvement of LRGs in UPR, drawing lessons from the Voluntary Local Reviews (VLRs) submitted in the framework of the SDGs reporting process. The GCH retreat shall result in a list of activities to be undertaken both immediately and in the longer-term by various stakeholders to enhance the participation of local and regional governments in UPR.
