Lowongan Consultant for Partnership Management

Consultant for Partnership Management


The United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG) is a worldwide association of local governments and the officially recognised voice of local governments by the United Nations. UCLG was established on 1 January 2004 and is headquartered in Barcelona, Spain. UCLG is an amalgamation of International Union of Local Authorities (IULA), United Towns Organisation (UTO), and World Association of the Major Metropolises (METROPOLIS) set up in Ghent (Belgium) in 1913, in Aix-les-Bains (France) in 1957 and in Paris (France) in 1985, respectively. 

 Following this unification, UCLG ASPAC was established in Taipei on 14 April 2004, as the new entity of IULA ASPAC. UCLG ASPAC’s Secretariat is based in Jakarta, Indonesia. UCLG ASPAC is the largest regional section of UCLG. It has linkages to more than 7,000 cities and local governments and represents well over 3.76 billion people - more than half of the world population - and incorporates economically fast-developing countries such as China, India, and Indonesia.

UCLG ASPAC is the key knowledge management hub on local government issues in the Asia-Pacific region. It promotes democratic local government, supports cooperation between cities, local governments and their associations, and facilitates programmes, network and partnerships to develop the capacity of local governments and the associations. Moreover, UCLG ASPAC represents local governments politically within the international community, and with the United Nations and its agencies. It also promotes inclusive societies that safeguard equality, social and economic justice, and sustainable community development.

In the wider context, UCLG ASPAC works closely with cities and partner organisations, to promote various aspects of people’s well-being including on: local economic development, public space, disaster risk reduction, SDGs localisation and overall urban development. Furthermore, UCLG ASPAC serves as official secretariat or focal point of regional mechanisms such as the ASEAN Mayors Forum (AMF), the Asia-Pacific Local Governments (APLG), and the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy for Southeast Asia (GCoM SEA).

Further in 2017, UCLG ASPAC Executive Bureau decided to establish a Committee on Belt and Road Local Cooperation (BRLC) and the 21st Century Maritime Cooperation, an effort led by Hangzhou City and Fuzhou City, respectively. Both Committees aim to foster local-level cooperation among UCLG ASPAC members and beyond through various forms of activities in order to achieve sustainable development outcomes within the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). Under this framework, UCLG ASPAC has initiated a Belt & Silk Road online information as a knowledge-sharing platform under the domain name: www.beltnsilkroad.com.
